Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
Welcoming New Catholics
Welcoming new members is one of the most wonderful experiences in the life of the Church. It brings new life and vigour not only to the newly baptised but to the whole Church community. The formal way this happens is through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
The rite of initiation is suited to a spiritual journey of adults that varies according to
the many forms of Gods grace,
the free cooperation of the individuals
the action of the Church
and the circumstances of time and place
