Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) 成人道理班

St. John the Apostle
5457 Trafalgar St
Vancouver, BC V6N 1C1

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a program for people interested in the Catholic faith, whether they are non-Catholics thinking about becoming Catholic, or Catholics who wish to learn more and/or embrace the Catholic faith. The program starts with a period of instruction and progresses into a more in-depth experience of Catholicism and then invites participants into a process of initiation. Often this includes the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism (for those not yet baptized), Confirmation, and the Holy Eucharist.

RCIA at St. John the Apostle is offered in English, Mandarin, and Cantonese.
