 Joining the Church & Becoming Catholic-RCIA

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process through which interested adults are gradually introduced to the Roman Catholic faith and way of life.

The RCIA is a communal process and involves a number of stages punctuated by liturgical rites to aid and assist the potential convert toward the final rite, usually at the Easter Vigil at which time they will become full members of the Roman Catholic Church. The entire process takes several months, (ideally a minimum of one complete liturgical year), but participants are generally invited to proceed at a pace which suits them individually. The Church prefers to call this the process and not a program.

The sacraments of initiation in the Catholic Church are BAPTISM, THE HOLY EUCHARIST (Communion) and CONFIRMATION.  The inquiry phase of RCIA typically begins in September.  If you are thinking about the process of conversion please call the parish office for more information: 203-264-5071 or email Fr.

Sr. Pat Torre and Ami Conlan are also available for conversations.  We look forward to hearing your story and and discerning how we can meet your spiritual needs.
