The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process of discerning and ritualizing stages of gradual conversion. Initiation of adults belongs to all the baptized. The process is about a relationship over time with both God and the Catholic community. It is the Church’s method of a faith journey of conversion. You are invited to become a sponsor in order to support and introduce non-Catholic adults to the Catholic faith and its traditions. This is a lengthy and serious commitment. The RCIA process begins in September and ends in May. Sponsors and catechumens meet on Thursday evenings from 7:00 until 8:30.
