Adults Becoming Catholic

Unbaptized Candidates: RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

This is a year-long process for those who have not been baptized in a Christian faith tradition and are interested in joining the Roman Catholic Church. If you are interested, contact the office today to discover more about the preparation for initiation into the faith. (Children age 7 and older who are not baptized would be candidates for the RCIA for Children process.)

Baptized Candidates: Rite of Full Reception

Offered year-round, this Rite is for adult persons already baptized in another Christian tradition who are seeking reception into the Catholic Church. This rite is also for Catholics who need to complete their sacraments of initiation (Confirmation, First Eucharist).

To join the preparation for RCIA or Rite of Full Reception or to find out more: contact Lisa Gorton at lisa.gorton@saintgabriel.org or call the office at 804-639-6712.
