RCIA - Rites of Christian Initiation for Adults
RCIA is a process through which a person is introduced to the Catholic faith and is fully incorporated into the Body of Christ, the Church. This process includes instruction, prayer, and liturgical ceremonies that mark each stage. Catechumens (those who have never been baptized) and Candidates (those who are baptized in a different faith tradition or a baptized Catholic who has never been confirmed) are mentored throughout the process by their chosen sponsors and a team of instructors.
