Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

How to Become a Catholic

in St. Edward Parish

Shelton, Washington


The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is designed for adults who, after hearing the mystery of Christ proclaimed, consciously and freely seek the living God and enter the way of faith and conversion as the Holy Spirit opens their hearts. By God's help they will be strengthened spiritually during their preparation and at the proper time will receive the sacraments fruitfully.

This program is available for anyone who wants to become Catholic and for adult Catholics who have not yet completed their sacraments of initiation (First Holy Communion and/or Confirmation). Also, anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic faith is invited to attend! Contact Mary Chapman at 360 426-6134 for more information.
