Pray for us Pier Giorgio Frassati. Show us the road "verso l’alto", that rises to Heaven and close to the heart of God. Teach us to be saints for the Church and for the world! Amen.

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Children, Youth and Adults)

The RCIA is a process which interested adults and older children are introduced to the Roman Catholic faith. The entire process which takes months of preparation and study forms them into the fullness of the Christian life to become disciples of Jesus. This includes an initiation into the mystery of salvation, the practice of faith, and love, and other virtues in a succession of liturgical rites. The process outlines the steps for the formation of catechumens, bringing their conversion to the faith to a greater maturity.
