Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is for children 14 years thru adulthood.

Children from the age of 7 to 14 years old must go through the RCIA adapted for children. They are also received into the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil. (In the Diocese of St. Petersburg, children who were baptized and received their First Eucharist are supposed to be confirmed at the age of 14 yrs.)

This process is open to anyone interested in becoming a member of the Catholic Faith. Please contact the office at 352 746-2144.
