Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process through which non-baptized individuals and those from another Christian faith tradition become Roman Catholics. The process at Saint Andrew begins when you make contact with us of your desire. We have a sit down conversation with you and then assign you a mentor who will journey with you along the path to become Catholic.
We welcome adults and family members (over 7 years of age) to begin the process anytime. There is a formal period of instruction leading to the evening before Easter when you would be formally welcomed into the Catholic Church as you are baptized and receive additional sacraments. There is a separate program for adults (those over 18) and children (7 – 17) that run concurrently.
