RCIA Network of England & Walessupporting the journey of faith
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
The RCIA is the liturgical and catechetical process designed for adults attracted by Christ and his teaching. It supports them as they seek to respond more deeply and to enter into the Communion of the Church.
- For more information about the Rite see Resources.
The RCIA Network is made up of people who have leadership roles in the RCIA process in Dioceses and parishes, and exists to support them in their work and to promote an authentic understanding of the Church’s teaching about the Rite.
