The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a year-long process of formation and discernment for those interested in becoming fully initiated into the Catholic faith through the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and First Holy Communion. 


St. Paul's is blessed with one of the largest RCIA programs in the Northeast, receiving dozens of converts each year. Consisting of a mix of college students, graduate students and local professionals of all ages, the program provides a full immersion into the Catholic faith through spiritual and theological formation, mentoring, and fellowship.


It is open to adults seeking baptism, those baptized in another Christian denomination, and those who were baptized in the Catholic Church but not confirmed. Program begins in September each year and meets weekly Saturday evenings, culminating at the Easter Vigil.

The Sacrament of Confirmation is "necessary for the completion of baptismal grace." For by it, the baptized "are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit," thus making them more faithful witnesses to Christ in the world. (CCC, 1285)


Adults who are already baptized Catholic and seeking Confirmation are prepared through the RCIA program.


Please see the St. Paul's Parish Sacraments and Worship Page for more information.
