RCIA: Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

Do you want to understand more fully your Savior and the Church that he founded?  Do you want answers to your questions about God and his Church? Well here is your chance.  Dive into RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults - and discover the beauty of the Church.  RCIA is not just for those interested in joining the Catholic Church but also for Catholics who long to grow in their knowledge of their own faith. Please contact Brett Eckert,brett@cathedralolph.org with questions or to register.  


What is RCIA?

RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, the process which the unbaptized, as well as baptized Christians of other faith traditions, journey together as a community to explore and discover the truth, beauty, and goodness of the Catholic Faith.


Who can join RCIA?

RCIA is open to all adults who have completed at least one ALPHA series. 


What if I’m not sure that I want to become Catholic? 

There is no pressure, just an invitation to come learn and be a part of our community. This faith journey takes place alongside fellow inquirers, seeking to have a fuller understanding, and perhaps participation, in the life of the Church.


What if I just want to come as a “learner,” but I’m already Catholic?

You are more than welcome to join us as a learner.
