Rites of Christian Initiation of Adults
The RCIA is the Liturgical and Catechetical process,designed for adults attracted by Christ and His teachings
It supports and asista them as they seek yo respond more deeply and to enter into the communion of the Catholic Church.
The journey of initiation into the Catholic Church is a gradual process and takes place within the community of the faithful.
Team members from the parish meet with the candidates,usually weekly and these sessions provide the framework which enables candidates to grow in understanding of the faith,and to gradually become part of the parish community of faith and its way of life.
A typical session would begin with exploring the Sunday Gospel, looks at its links to life and its connection to the Liturgical Celebration. Discussions then explore the traditions and teachings of the Catholic Church.
The journey of faith has no definite time limit and often varies between six months and one year.
Throughout the Catholic Church however,the Baptism of Adults will usually take place during the celebration of the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday night.
