The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process is for adults who are looking to be confirmed in the Catholic faith. It is the Church's way of assisting individuals through their conversion to Catholic Christianity or to full initiation into the Catholic Church.
Possible candidates for RCIA are adults who (1) have never been baptized, (2) were baptized Catholic as infants but need to complete their Sacraments, and (3) were baptized in other Christian traditions.
At St. Louis, RCIA classes begin in September 2020 and candidates receive the sacrament of Confirmation in spring 2021. Classes are held on Sundays, directly after the 11:00 Mass (from 12:00 to 1:00), in the Sacristy at St. Louis. A variety of topics are taught by different instructors each week to educate candidates about our Catholic faith.
