for info about RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
RCIA is the 'Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults'.
A person over 18 years of age, either un-baptized or baptized in another Christian tradition
& seeking full entry into the Catholic Church does so through RCIA.
RCIA is a faith journey & as such can take from about 9 months to several years.
Currently, at SMG, the RCIA program begins in late August and runs through May.
The Sacraments of Initiation are normally recieved at the Easter Vigil.
MARRIAGE & RCIA:
If you are currently married outside the Catholic Church, Marriage Preparation & a validation of your current marriage may be required before you can be fully received into the Church. Likewise, any previous marriages may have to go through the Marriage Tribunal process before a current marriage can be validated, or before a future Marriage may be entered into. This process is highly individual and depends upon many factors.
