Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the program in which interested adults and teenagers older than 16 years are provided the knowledge they require to receive missing sacraments or to be welcomed into the Catholic faith. Annually, the program begins around Advent, culminates with candidates and catechumens receiving their sacraments during the Easter Vigil, and concludes with a celebratory phase during the Easter season.

Deacon Nelson Torres leads the RCIA for the parish. For initial inquiry, call Rocio Ramos or Deacon Torres at the Throop Avenue Center.
