The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process in which a person who is not baptized or baptized in another faith denomination journeys with others like them and other Catholics to be fully initiated into the Catholic Faith. It is a process of formation. There are four steps in this formation process which culminates at the Easter Vigil with the celebration of the three Sacraments of Initiation, Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist. The parish community, through its prayers, witness, worship, service, and catechesis, offers the invitation and support for the men and women to initiate into the Catholic Church. Weekly meetings are held beginning in September and ending in May. Sponsorship is needed always rewarding.

From Saint John Paul II (1988, Christifideles Laici)
“Above all, the common outcry, which is justly made on behalf of human rights – for example, the right to health, to home, to work, to family, to culture – is false and illusory if the right to life, the most basic and fundamental right and the condition for all other personal rights, is not defended with maximum determination”.
