Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a year-long process for students of our Siena Community who desire full initiation into the Roman Catholic Church by receiving the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist.  RCIA is also for those students who are already Baptized and wish to be Confirmed.  Weekly instruction / discussion sessions are held to help to prepare students for the Sacraments of Initiation celebrated with the Bishop of Albany.  Emphasis is placed on building community and providing an atmosphere of growth, prayer, and discernment.  Registration for RCIA takes place from September through the beginning of October.




All interested students should complete the Rite of Initiation Interest Form, or contact the Chaplain's Office.
