Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)
In this discernment process, adults are introduced to the Catholic faith and prepared for full communion with the Catholic Church. There are for main stages to the process: Inquiry Period, Period of Catechumenate, Period of Purification and Enlightenment, and Mystagogy. Through theses stages, un-baptized persons are prepared for Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation. Adults already baptized in another Christian tradition receive First Communion and Confirmation.
