BECOMING CATHOLIC

BECOMING CATHOLIC

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process that welcomes and forms prospective members in the faith of the Catholic Church. Its stages and rites culminate at the Easter Vigil with the celebration of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation in the church of St. Mary University Parish.

The RCIA process begins in early September and continues until early May. Weekly meetings include community-building, faith formation (or catechesis), pastoral conversations, and prayer to help participants better understand and integrate Catholic beliefs and practices that concretely express the faith.
