What is RCIA?

According to the Diocese of Arlington, “The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, or RCIA, is the process through which adults explore and, if they choose, eventually become Catholic, whether through Baptism or being received into full communion with the Church.  Through RCIA you will have an opportunity to ask questions in a non-pressured environment alongside others who are on the same journey, learning the fundamental beliefs and practices of the Catholic faith and what it means to live as a Catholic.”

The duration of the RCIA process may vary depending on a case by case basis, due to many factors that may apply from person to person. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
