RCIA stands for “The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults” and it is the sacramental formation process that initiates individuals into the Christian way of life, specifically in the Roman Catholic tradition.
If you are curious about what Catholics believe or just have questions, please join others seeking answers at one of our informal inquiry meetings. Please call the Pastoral Assistant for Faith Formation at 360-384-8818 to find out the time of the next meeting or to simply have your questions answered.
Those who want to learn more join formal RCIA sessions in the fall. Full communion with the church occurs at the Easter Vigil when new members are welcomed fully into the Catholic Church.
