RCIA: The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

Becoming A Roman Catholic

Thank you for your interest in becoming Catholic. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (or RCIA) is a journey of personal discovery, faith sharing, and learning about the Catholic Church. The RCIA group offers inquirers opportunities for discussion and to ask questions while discerning possible entrance into the Catholic Church. 

Saint Oscar Romero explains, “Each one of you has to be God’s microphone. Each one of you has to be a messenger, a prophet...Wherever there is someone who has been baptized, that is where the church is. There is a prophet there. Let us not hide the talent that God gave us on the day of our baptism and let us truly live the beauty and responsibility of being a prophetic people.”

Saint Oscar Romero reminds us that each one of us is on a faith journey, searching for a path towards God. Know of our prayers for you as you discern this RCIA journey. We pray that you may continue to draw closer in your relationship with God and with one another. We pray that you will be open minded and aware of the Holy Spirit’s presence in your life. We pray that you may draw inspiration from these words of Saint Oscar Romero and courageously use your gifts and talents to live in a way most pleasing to God. 

The RCIA group is open to all students, faculty and staff, and it will begin meeting weekly in October. If you are interested in learning more about this process and possibly becoming Catholic, please contact Katie Mathews, Campus Minister for Liturgy and Sacraments.
