RCIA – Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults




RCIA is the process through which new adult members are brought into the Roman Catholic Church. Those eligible include unbaptized adults and those baptized into another Christian denomination, as well as baptized Catholics who have not received both sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.

The RCIA program starts in September and typically leads to reception into full communion with the Catholic Church the following Easter. RCIA candidates attend Sunday Mass together, followed by discussions on scripture, the sacraments, and what it means to be Catholic.

Persons interested in exploring becoming Catholic should contact the rectory at 732-356-4442.
