The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process for welcoming adult inquirers into the Roman Catholic Church. The RCIA is a spiritual journey that leads to a transformation of mind and spirit. The main purpose of RCIA is to assist prospective Catholics to learn more about the Faith and to become active members of the Church. RCIA is for adults who have never received baptism, who were baptized in another Christian denomination and desire to embrace the Catholic Faith, who were baptized as Catholics, left the Church, and now wish to be instructed so that they may know and practice the Faith. At St. Ambrose, the RCIA meets weekly, beginning in August, culminating with the Easter Vigil and Feast of Pentecost.
