Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The RCIA is the process through which the church welcomes and instructs new members. This process is designed for adults who wish to be fully initiated into the Catholic Church through the sacraments of initiation: Baptism (or profession of faith for those already baptized); Confirmation; and, First Eucharist.  Candidates may be un-baptized adults, baptized adults (those validly baptized in another Christian denomination) who wish to join the Catholic Church, or baptized Catholic adults who now want to complete their sacramental initiation into the Church by receiving the sacraments of Confirmation and/or First Eucharist. 

.A special invitation for Adults who desire to receive the Sacramet of confirmation in the Fall come and register now, for interviews and materials.  Please call Sister Pat Reills at the office of Faith Formation 718-457-3457.

We are forming RCIA classes for Adults who desire to complete their initiation through the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist and confirmation.  This class is open also to adults who wish to become Catholic and desire Baptism.


Con el propósito de participar plenamente en la vida sacramental de la Iglesia, los niños mayores de los 8 años de edad, necesitarán prepararse en el proceso de Iniciación Cristiana Para Niños. Los jóvenes y los adultos se preparán separadamente en el proceso del RICA.
