The Journey in Faith (Rite of Christian Initiation in Adults - RCIA) is the process
through which interested adults and older children are gradually introduced to the
Roman Catholic faith and way of life.
This is a communal process and involves a number of stages to assist the potential
convert in their Journey. The RCIA is normally completed at the Easter Vigil at which
time they will become full members of the Roman Catholic Church. The entire process
takes several months, but participants are generally invited to proceed at a pace
which suits them individually.
