- The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) names the process by which interested persons gradually become members of the Catholic Church. The R.C.I.A. is primarily a journey of faith: From the awareness of stirring of faith and curiosity within one's heart, through all those stages of asking and seeking, through beginning involvement with Christian/Catholic people, through hearing the Gospel proclaimed and by faithful reflection and prayer on this Word of God, through study and discussion about the Catholic experience, through doubts and hesitations, through involvement in the works of charity and justice with those already committed to the catholic way of life, through discernment of God's call for them as individuals, through the steps of commitment, through the sacraments of initiation (baptism, confirmation, and eucharist) to a life of faith, love, and justice lived in communion with Catholics throughout the world.
