Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

​Are you or anyone you know interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith? 

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a journey toward becoming a full, participating member of the Catholic Church. RCIA is a faith formation process designed primarily for adults who have not been baptized in any faith and are intentionally seeking God in their lives. Additionally, it is for those baptized in other faiths, as well as baptized Catholics who have never completed their sacraments of initiation, specifically confirmation and Eucharist.  For more information contact our Parish Office, 724-437-4441.
