“In the sacraments of Christian initiation we are freed from the power of darkness and joined to Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. We receive the Spirit of filial adoption and are part of the entire people of God in the celebration of the Lord’s death and resurrection.”  (General Introduction to RCIA, 1)

The Church welcomes those who want to join themselves to Christ through the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. She also welcomes Christians from other Christian communions who, already baptized, wish to complete their sacraments of initiation in the Catholic Church.

RCIA is also intended for Catholics returning after some absence from the Church to the practice of the Catholic faith.

RCIA at Christ the King Parish meets on Sunday mornings. We begin with attendance as a group at the 8:45 a.m. Mass, and are dismissed during that liturgy. Instruction ends around noon. For more information, refer to  “Frequently Asked Questions”  or the Contact Information below.
