First Scrutiny March 2024-12

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the name by which many know the process of becoming Catholic. The process is actually a faith journey.

We accompany adults through a process of deepening their relationship with Jesus and gradually introducing them to the Roman Catholic faith and way of life. The RCIA is also the venue for people that were baptized in another Christian faith tradition but now desire to participate in the Catholic sacramental life.

In the RCIA you will experience Catholic Christianity – who we are, what we believe, how we pray, how we live our lives as a community of believers. The RCIA process is a period of reflection, prayer, instruction, discernment, and formation. But this spiritual journey is more than just faith formation – at its core, the RCIA is a journey of conversion and relationship with Jesus Christ and his Church.

Those interested in the RCIA should call the Rectory Office at 631-665-4911.
