Go and Make Disciples

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

RCIA is an on-going process offered for unbaptized adults that introduces them to God the Father, Jesus Christ his Son, and the Holy Spirit, as well as the liturgical life and teachings of the Catholic Church. Many individuals decide during this time to prepare themselves to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and First Holy Communion; however, it is not a requirement of the process.

The RCIA process is also open to baptized Christian adults seeking to better understand the Catholic faith and possibly gain full communion with the Catholic Church. 

We meet on Thursday evenings from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. in the Assumption School Library.

Our initial gathering session for late summer 2021 will be held on Thursday, Sept. 2.

Please contact Gina DePalma at ginad@assumption.org or (360) 733-1380 x4222 prior to the resumption of sessions. Thank you!
