BECOMING CATHOLIC (RCIA)
You can become Catholic through an initiation program called RCIA, which stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, the process by which an adult person is initiated into the full communion with the Catholic Church.
RCIA is the journey through which adults receive instructions in the teachings of the Catholic faith and are prepared to receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist). Each year on Holy Saturday during the Easter Vigil, thousands of men and women are received into the Catholic Church in the United States.
RCIA is also a great resource for current Catholics who want to learn more about Church teachings.
Sessions are held weekly from September through June. If you are interested in becoming Catholic or in learning more about the Catholic Church, please download the registration form using the button above. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Sr. Raquel Ortez, director of religious education, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
