“The Church established by Christ on the foundation of the Apostles, possessing the fullness of the means of salvation which he has willed: correct and complete confession of faith, full sacramental life, and ordained ministry in apostolic succession (830).”

All journeyers over the age of 7 enter what is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or RCIA for short. It begins with a stage of Inquiry where you are introduced to a taste of our faith and faith life. Then if you feel called to go deeper you will enter the stage of Catechumenate or Learner when you will receive more information to know and live the Catholic Christian faith. When you and the community are ready, then on the vigil of Easter Sunday you will be baptized, confirmed and receive the Eucharist and be considered a full member of Christ’s Body that is the Church. From then on, you will enter what is called, Mystagogia, ways to connect you further into the life of the Church and relationship with Jesus Christ.
