RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. If you would like more information on joining the Catholic Church as an adult, please contact Faith Formation at 585-594-1441.
"The rite of Christian initiation is designed for adults who, after hearing the mystery of Christ proclaimed, consciously and freely seek the living God and enter the way of faith and conversion as the Holy Spirit opens their hearts. By God's help they will be strengthened spiritually during their preparation and at the proper time will receive the sacraments fruitfully." (RCIA, #1)
