RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initation of Adults. It is a process that an adult man or woman goes through to become Roman Catholic. It is a program that enables adult Catholics who have not received their First Eucharist (Communion) or who were not confirmed to receive those sacraments. This program provides answers to questions and education about the doctrine of our religion.
