Are you thinking of becoming a Catholic? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process whereby adults enter the Catholic Church. Those who attend the RCIA classes receive instruction on the teachings of the Catholic Church and are given the opportunity to ask questions about those beliefs.
The RCIA program takes about eight to nine months, typically starting in September and ending in May. The culmination of the program is at the Easter Vigil when candidates and catechumens receive the Sacraments and become full members of the Catholic Church. Classes meet on a weekly basis.
Just because you begin RCIA, doesn't mean you are obligated to become Catholic. Catholics and non-Catholics alike who want to deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith are welcome.
Resources for entering the Catholic Church are available at Catholics Come Home.
