Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The RCIA, which stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults,
is a process through which non-baptized men and women enter the Catholic Church.
(It is also for those baptized in a different faith tradition who wish to become Catholic,
or baptized Catholic, but never confirmed.)

The program includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass.
Participants in the RCIA are known as catechumens. They undergo a process of
conversion as they study the Gospel, profess faith in Jesus and the Catholic Church,
and receive the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Holy Eucharist. The RCIA
process follows the ancient practice of the Church and was restored by the Second
Vatican Council as the normal way adults prepare for baptism. In 1974 the
Rite for Christian Initiation for Adults was formally approved for use in the United States.


To learn more about RCIA contact your pastor or Dcn. Phil Lawson at plawson@vermontcatholic.org or 802-658-6110 ext 1453.
