The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is an ancient rite that was reintroduced into the Church after the 2nd Vatican Council in 1965. It is a process (not a program) for adults who wish to become Catholic Christians. It is a flexible process designed both for those seeking baptism and for those baptized in other Christian denominations, who are now seeking membership in the Roman Catholic Church. The process of becoming a Catholic progresses through four stages. This final stage takes place during the Easter season (the period between Easter and Pentecost), after the participants have become Catholic. This final stage is a reminder that the initiation process is not the end of becoming a Catholic, but the beginning! R.C.I.A. meets every Wednesday evening at 7:30pm to 9:00pm in the Parish Hall.
