RCIA – The Rite of Christian Initiation

RCIA is the process by which men and women enter into the Catholic Community of Faith. The program is for those who:

* have never been baptized and wish to become Catholic,

* have been baptized in another faith tradition and wish to become Catholic,

* have been baptized Catholic but have not received the other Sacraments of Initiation (Confirmation and Eucharist) and would like to receive these sacraments,

* are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith.

If you are interested in joining the Catholic Church, completing the Sacraments of Initiation or just finding out about the Catholic Church, please call the San Rafael Adult Education Office (858)487-4314, ext. 1224, for information.
