Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults - RCIA

RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. RCIA flows from Vatican II to guide the process by which adults and youth are initiated into our Roman Catholic community. The RCIA describes a process in which men and women are guided and cared for as they awaken in faith and are gradually introduced to the Catholic way of life. The RCIA process is a series of carefully planned stages, marked by liturgical rites in the presence of the whole community, in which new Catholics embark on and join us in a continuing and deepening conversion into faith and discipleship. The RCIA takes the distinctive history and spiritual needs of each person into account, differentiating between the baptised  and the un-baptised, the catechized and the un-catechized. The needs of mature, practicing Christians from other faith traditions are considered on an individual basis.

RCIA is a year long process which begins in September and ends at the Easter Vigil. Please contact Rona Skelton, rona@stanngulfbreeze.org, Faith Formation Director, for more information.
