“In the sacraments of Christian initiation we are freed from the power of darkness and joined to Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. We receive the Spirit of filial adoption and are part of the entire people of God in the celebration of the Lord’s death and resurrection.” (General Introduction to RCIA, 1)
The Church welcomes those who want to join themselves to Christ through the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. She also welcomes Christians from other Christian communions who, already baptized, wish to complete their sacraments of initiation in the Catholic Church, as well as Catholics returning after some absence from the Church to the practice of the Catholic faith. The process by which this happens is called the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).
At Christ the King, RCIA is structured with small groups meeting with catechists who guide them into an understanding of the Catholic Church. Participants meet weekly as a small group and once a month as a large group to unpack the mysteries of the faith.
