Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

For Adults (about 18 and older), the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the usual process of welcoming new members into the Roman Catholic faith. Those who are unbaptized, baptized in another Christian denomination, or Catholics who have not participated in the sacraments beyond Baptism come together with members of the St. Ignatius community to hear Scripture, reflect on its meaning for their lives, and study the teachings of the Catholic Church. After prayer and discernment, the whole community celebrates Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil with those who are called to follow Jesus in the Roman Catholic tradition. For Youth (7 - about 18 yrs.), the Rite of Christian Initiation provides a process for welcoming youth into the Roman Catholic faith. Like their adult counterparts, youth also hear the Scriptures and study the teachings of the Catholic Church with peers and then celebrate the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil.
