Right of Christian Initiation for Adults
“Life is filled with many invitations! Some invitations can lead us to totally unexpected experiences. We extend to you an invitation that can lead you to a life of love, faith and hope as you learn to walk with the Lord.” (stambrose.us/rcia) The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a process where you can experience the Catholic faith in community. It is an opportunity for questions to be answered and for learning about the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church.
