Rite of Christian Iniation for Adults
Are you interested in exploring the Catholic faith?
Is someone you know interested in exploring the Catholic Faith?
Do you desire Baptism, First Communion, and/or Confirmation?
Roman Catholics believe a person's spiritual journey must begin with a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Adults: Ages 18 and older prepare for the Catholic Baptism and other Sacraments, through this process called "The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults"
Children: Ages 7 through 17 prepare for a Catholic Baptism through the process called "The Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC)"
The Christian initiation process is not a program. Programs have a fixed length of time and a determined course of studies. No one can "program" the Holy Spirit as the Spirit moves individuals to conversion; each person's conversion journey is unique.
