Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults



RCIA, or the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a club that offers the opportunity for students to begin, finish, or continue learning about the Christian faith. RCIA focuses on teaching students the practices and dogmas of the faith in weekly meetings in preparation to receive the Sacraments in the Spring semester, from Baptism to First Holy Communion, to Reconciliation, to Confirmation. RCIA is also open to those who have received all of their Sacraments, but want to learn more about the faith. From those who convert to Catholicism to those who have lived it their entire lives, RCIA is a club that fosters the knowledge and beliefs of Catholicism and creates a community that will offer support, guidance, fulfillment, and laughter.
