Joining the Church as an adult
RCIA (RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION FOR ADULTS)
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is the best way for those who are not Catholic to learn about the Catholic faith. The process usually takes about nine months from September to after Easter. At the end of the experience, those who wish to become Catholic may do so. Because each person's journey of faith is unique some may be ready to receive the sacraments sooner and others may wish to take more time. Each person's particular situation is taken into account. Each participant has a sponsor who is a Catholic, and who attends the weekly meetings and special celebrations throughout the year with them. At Easter time, those wishing to become Catholic celebrate Baptism (if they have not been baptized before), Confirmation and their first Eucharist.
