RCIA · Converting to Catholicism

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which adults over the age of 16 convert to Catholicsm. At a special liturgy on Holy Saturday of each liturgical year, thousands of men and women are welcomed into the Catholic Church worldwide at a solemn Easter Vigil.

The preparation time prior to the RCIA on Holy Saturday is known as the Period of Evangelization and there is no prescribed time frame; it is a highly individual process. For general information about RCIA, the US Conference of Catholic Bishops maintains a FAQ that you may find helpful, and you are encouraged to contact our pastor or associate pastor for additional information.
