 What is RCIA?  Why go through the Process?

RCIA is the RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS.                                                            

It is a process through which an individual inquires and explores Christianity as a way of life in the Catholic Church.

Have you ever asked yourself the following questions?

  • How is the Catholic Christian faith different from other Christian religions?
  • Will being a Catholic help me develop and strengthen my relationship with God?
  • Will teachings of Jesus enhance the fullness of life for me that is promised in the Scriptures?
  • Will being a member of the Catholic Church make a difference in my life?

If you have asked yourself any of these questions, the RCIA process will help you answer them.

Life is a journey where a person is constantly learning, growing, and changing.   This process is a step in that journey and lays the ground work, through information and experiences, in helping you decide if you want to be a member of the Catholic faith.  It provides the opportunity to ask questions, pray, and experience what is meant by being a Catholic Christian and entering into a relationship with God and the Catholic community.


   What is the Commitment?

The RCIA members meet every Thursday Sept. through May, at the CTK Msgr. Wade Parish Hall, and on Sundays at the 10:45 mass from late November until Easter. 

   Why is RCIA important?

You have probably experienced adults who are searching for meaning, faith and God in their lives.  In the RCIA process, we welcome those who have grown up with no religion at all, those who were baptized in a Christian tradition but have lost touch with the church, those who have a background in other Christian traditions, and those who were baptized Catholic but received little or no religious instruction.  By enabling these people to grow closer to God, we enrich their lives and spread the Light Of Christ a little further in the world.

The RCIA program begins with Inquiry.  Inquirers are invited to ask questions, share their stories, hear the Good News and reflect on the place of God in their lives.  The lessons are very straighforward, touching on the highlights of our faith: the Creed, Mass, Prayer, the Bible, Saints and Mary.
