In the Sacraments, we begin with signs we can see, feel, or hear; 
water, oil, bread and wine, human words and gestures.  
God acts through the ordinary to make our lives extraordinary.  
Blessing and praising God is one way we respond to God’s action in our lives. 

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults - RCIA

The Rite of Christian Initiation For Adults (RCIA) is a process whereby adults (age 18 years and over) who wish to become fully initiated members of the Roman Catholic faith are brought into the Church after a period of time (usually one year) that allows for inquiry into the discussion/reflection of the Gospels. They may be Christians from a Protestant denomination, non-Christian from other faiths, or lapsed Catholic’s wishing to renew their faith.  

The RCIA strives to prepare Candidates and Catechumens on both educational and spiritual levels.
