Our Adult Sacramental Program is Called RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation). It is one of the oldest traditions in the Catholic Church that we still follow today, that gives adults the opportunity to do their Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, First Communion, and/or Confirmation).
If you are age 18 or older, you are eligible to begin the RCIA program. We begin this program every year towards the end of August and it lasts through to the Spring of the following year. This program is also open to any adult who has already completed their Sacraments of Initiation but would like to refresh their knowledge on the Catholic Faith.
