The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process through which interested adults

and older children are gradually introduced to the Roman Catholic faith and way of life. 


At Saint Josephine Bakhita, we have an RCIA program in place to minister to all who desire to become full members of the Church.

​Examples of people who qualify include:

  • a child around seven or older who is connected to the Church
        but has not been baptized;

  • someone who is a member of another faith denomination
        who is feeling called to the Catholic Church;

  • someone who has been connected to the Catholic Church
         for a while but has never been baptized;

  • someone who has been baptized in the Catholic Church
        but has not received very much religious education, 
        First Eucharist or Confirmation.

​​We ask for the prayers and support of the entire parish community as we continue to grow in our ministry of welcoming new members

through the R.C.I.A. process.
