The Christian Initiation Ministry prepares children, youth, adults and families to receive the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist). The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a formal program of catechetical instruction, bible study, prayer and spirituality, and participation in liturgies whereby adults are formally admitted into the Catholic Church and receive the sacraments. The RCIA process has been adapted to meet the specific needs of children seven years and older in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Children (RCIC) and the specific needs of youth in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Youth (RCIY).
