Becoming Catholic (RCIA)
Get to Know RCIA
What is RCIA?
RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. It's the process of inquiry for those interested in learning about the Catholic faith and/or formally seeking to become members of the Catholic Church.
What is the commitment for RCIA?
At Christ the Redeemer, participants generally meet once a week on Tuesday nights (beginning in January) with gradual introduction to Mass on Sundays as well. Depending on their readiness, individuals have an opportunity to become members of the Catholic Church at Easter.
One makes no commitment by attending a session – you are most welcome to come and "check us out"! We hope you will enjoy exploring the Catholic faith in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, and give us a chance to serve you wherever you are at.
What can I expect when I attend a session?
Tuesday sessions involve dynamic presentations on the teachings of the faith, a period for questions and discussion, and an introduction to prayer.
