What is RCIA?

The RCIA is a process of initiation into the Catholic Church for adults. This process prepares adults to receive the sacraments of Christian initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Holy Eucharist). While the formal RCIA process tends to end some time after initiation, the RCIA journey continues where as a baptised Catholic, you will continue to be lifelong and joyful disciples of Jesus Christ.

How long is RCIA?

RCIA journeys have varying lengths. As a general guide, the journey is about a year - from your time of inquiry till a couple of weeks after baptism the following Easter.

"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above,
coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.
Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth,
that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures."
—Luke 15:17
