What is RCIA?

Catechism for Young & Adults / R.C.I.A

The rite of Christian initiation for adults (R.C.I.A.) is a religious education program for individuals 16 years of age or older that have not yet received any of the initiation sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation and/or Eucharist. It is also for adults from other faiths that are looking to become members of the Catholic community. Those who have been baptized Catholic, but have not received formal Catholic instruction are also welcome to be part of this program.


Que es el RICA?

Catecismo para Jovenes y Adultos / R.I.C.A

El Rito de Iniciación Cristiana de Adultos (R.I.C.A.) es un programa de educación religiosa para jóvenes mayores de 16 años o adultos que no hayan recibido los sacramentos de iniciación: Bautismo, Comunión y/o Confirmación, o para adultos de otras tradiciones religiosas que desean investigar las posibilidades de convertirse en miembros de la comunidad católica. Los católicos bautizados que no han tenido un entrenamiento o preparación en la Iglesia también son bienvenidos a este programa. El R.I.C.A. forma adultos preparados en la sabiduría y tradición de la iglesia, ya que por medio de la oración y el estudio profundo de nuestra fe católica, desarrollan un entendimiento y amor esenciales para su formación espiritual.
