BECOMING CATHOLIC THROUGH THE RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS (RCIA)

Each year on Holy Saturday during the Easter Vigil, thousands of people are baptized into the Catholic Church in the United States. Parishes welcome these new Catholics through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

What are the steps of RCIA?

What is meant by coming into full communion with the Church?

What is the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday like? What does the white robe symbolize? What does the candle symbolize? What does the Sacred Chrism symbolize? Why was this ancient rite restored? Is there a ceremony or preparation for Catholics who never or seldom have practiced the faith? What is the role of a godparent for an adult being baptized?

 

Please come to the classes to find out the answers to these questions and more.
