Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults Q&A
Welcome! We are happy you are interested in learning about the Catholic faith. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process by which men and women become members of the Catholic Church. It takes place within the context of the church community, and after a suitable period of formation, culminates in the reception of the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Eucharist. We hope the following answers your initial questions.

A Personal and Communal Journey

The three Sacraments of Initiation:

  1. Baptism: For Catholics, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God.
  2. Confirmation: Confirmation is a Catholic Sacrament of mature Christian commitment and a deepening of baptismal gifts. It is one of the three Sacraments of Initiation for Catholics. It is most often associated with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
  3. Eucharist: The Holy Eucharist is the most important of the seven Sacraments. Catholics believe we receive the very body and blood of Jesus Christ as He commanded at the Last Supper. Innumerable, precious graces come to us through the reception of Holy Communion.
