R.C.I.A. Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is the door that brings adults into the Catholic Christian tradition. This door is open at all times, but many seem to take advantage during the school year, that is from early October through April. While it is “tradition” that the Church welcomes new members during the Great Easter Vigil, especially those who have never been baptized; the Church also welcomes new members after they have been properly instructed regardless of the time of year.
The difference between R.C.I.A. and other types of instruction (catechesis) is that this process is aimed at those who are of an age of discernment who have either never been baptized, or have been baptized into another faith tradition i.e. as a Lutheran, Methodist, Baptist etc. There is also the occasion where a person has been baptized into the Catholic tradition, but was never confirmed in the faith.
If you are interested in this type of instruction in the faith, or know someone who is, please contact Deacon John Zinniel and he will be happy to meet with you and begin the process.
