The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), is a process designed for three different groups of people.
Adults who are not baptized and would like to join the Catholic Church.
Adults who were baptized as children into the Catholic faith, but who have not completed their initiation in the Church because they have not celebrated their First Holy Communion and/or Sacrament of Confirmation.
Adults who have been validly baptized in another Christian denomination and who now want to be received in the Catholic Church.
The Catholic Church welcomes people of all faiths and backgrounds into the RCIA process. Different parishes organize this process in slightly different ways. The RCIA process is designed to deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ in our pilgrimage of life.
For information regarding the RCIA program at the Basilica of St Patrick please contact the Parish Office during office hours on 9335 2268.
