Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Becoming Catholic is a journey that includes instruction, spiritual formation, and introduction to community life. The Church has a formal process for those who want to become Catholic called RCIA, or the Rite of Christian Initiation.  The formation process prepares people to become Catholic and receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist).  

St. Louis RCIA formation sessons begins in August 2019 and continues through May 2020. Those seeking the sacraments will usually receive Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil.

Our RCIA group meets on Sunday mornings. We sit together at the 9:30 a.m. Mass. The unbaptized will dismiss after the homily to reflect on the Gospel reading for the day. Afterwards, we all join together to cover some topic related to the Catholic faith. We dismiss by 1 P.M.

A new RCIA group will begin in August 2019. Please contact Tom below if you’re interested in joining the new group.

If you’ve already been baptized, but wish to become a fully initiated Catholic through the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist, we recommend that you look at our Adult Confirmation formation program.
