Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

rciawallslide2017What is RCIA?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a programme to welcome and assist adults who want to discover more about God and Christianity, and to prepare for baptism into the Catholic Faith. The choice to become a Catholic rests between you and God.

How does it work?

It is a journey made in the company of facilitators, sponsors and priests with the support of the church community. It facilitates faith discovery through teaching, sharing, prayers, communal worship, fellowship and other forms of experiential exercises.

How long is the journey?

We meet 2 hours each Tuesday and the whole programme lasts approximately 11 months, with Baptism at Easter Vigil.

Are there any conditions to meet? Is there any course fee?

No, just come as you are. It is Free of Charge.

Who can participate?

There are generally 3 categories of people that participate in RCIA:

  1. All individuals who are not baptised and who express a desire to explore the Catholic faith,
  2. Individuals who have been baptised in another Christian denomination and who wish to explore membership into the Catholic Church, and
  3. Catholics who have been baptised but who have not received the Sacraments of Confirmation and/or Holy Eucharist.

Am I obligated to become a Catholic if I go through the RCIA process?

There is no obligation for participants to become members of the Catholic Church. Anyone seeking information about the Catholic faith is welcome to attend our sessions.

Class of 2016-2017

New Catholics Experience Their First Triduum


by Agnes Loh, Coordinator

During the final day of the SIC (St Ignatius Church) Parish Feast Day (PFD) Triduum on 31 July 2017, our brothers- and sisters-in-Christ who recently completed their RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) journey particularly the newly-baptised and neophytes of Class of 2016-17 joined other ministries and BECs in the procession into church as members of the SIC community. It was a new spiritual experience for many of them and they were happy to be part of the celebration. After Mass, they took the opportunity to catch up with each other and joined in the fellowship meal with other parishioners.
