The RCIA process provide a means of renewal for the entire parish community. It is a constant reminder of our roots, our heritage, and our tradition. Each beginning offers an opportunity for all to revisit their own journey of faith, an opportunity to share the life story of how God is with us, an opportunity to grow into a more mature relationship with God and with one another as community. When expressed through the life of the parish at large, the RCIA can facilitate a continuing conversion process in the life of the whole community, so that together the members may reflect more clearly the image of the reign of God in our midst.
