Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

St. Patrick's Parish
2881 Main Street
Vancouver, BC V5T 3G1

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a program for people interested in the Catholic faith, whether they are non-Catholics thinking about becoming Catholic, or Catholics who wish to learn more and/or embrace  the Catholic faith. The program starts with a period of instruction and progresses into a more in-depth experience of Catholicism and then invites participants into a process of initiation. Often this includes the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism (for those not yet baptized, or baptized in another denomination), Confirmation and the Holy Eucharist.

St. Patrick's Parish offers a weekly RCIA program from September through June, with classes on Thursday nights from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm in the
St. John Paul II Boardroom
