Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
Inquiry is the first stage in the RCIA process. Do you know someone who longs for a deeper relationship with God? Are you thinking about joining St. Mary’s faith community? Do you know of someone who would like to receive all the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist? Or someone who was baptized Catholic but never received the sacraments of Communion and Confirmation? Have you been away from the church and would like to return? Is you or your spouse not Catholic and would like to receive information about becoming Catholic? Do you feel that you are being called to deepen your relationship with God?
This process, a conversion, is known as the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults and is available to Catholics and non-Catholics who are interested in becoming full members of the Catholic Community.
The length of the process varies for each person depending on individual circumstances.
