R.C.I.A. stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. It is an ongoing four-step process within parish life. It is designed to welcome new members, those who have not yet been baptized and those baptized in another faith, into the Catholic Church and at the same time help lead every Catholic parishioner to deeper belief and renewal of his or her Christian faith. In the process we invite, welcome, explain and teach about the many rich symbols, sacraments and traditions of the Catholic Church.
Our Christian faith begins at our baptism and sets us on a journey toward God, which lasts a lifetime. Growing in spiritual insight and maturity can be both challenging and reassuring. As we grow in our faith, we sometimes need comforting stories of those who have journeyed successfully before us. At the same time we look for spiritual support and friendship from companions along the way. The RCIA process both invites us and helps us feel welcome in a community where acceptance, security and healing can be felt and celebrated as nowhere else. Holy Trinity encourages and welcomes anyone interested in becoming a Catholic to contact the office for times and details of the RCIA class schedule. Please contact Desma Delgado at
