Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

RCIA Welcome


Thank you for inquiring about the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) program at Risen Savior. RCIA is the program through which the Church welcomes, educates, and equips those persons seeking full communion in the Catholic faith through the Sacraments of Initiation, namely, Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation.

RCIA is a program of discernment and instruction in which you will be introduced to the beliefs and practices of the Catholic faith. At Risen Savior, RCIA instruction is for (1) unbaptized or invalidly baptized persons, (2) Christians validly baptized in another Christian denomination, (3) baptized Catholics who lack the Sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation, and (4) members of Orthodox churches, who only need to proclaim a profession of faith publicly.

RCIA is not a class. Rather, it is a journey. While each individual is on their own journey, we are all moving in the same direction.
