RCIA: These four letters are an acronym for the Rite of the Christian Initiation of Adults. It is the process used by the universal Catholic Church to initiate new members into our faith community.

We invite you to explore this process on the pages that follow. The photographs for this site were taken by Jan Crocker, who recently participated in the initiation process at St. Paul's. We are grateful to him and Jim Dutton for making this site a possibility.
