The RCIY is youthful, dynamic and God-centred family ministry that brings youth on a journey to discover God through faith stories and experiences.
What we do
We are the younger and youthful sibling of Rites of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). We aim to introduce God to everyone through our activities & faith stories, facilitating the baptism and confirmation process for those who desire it.
Thus, Rites of Christian Initiation for Youths (RCIY) is a process whereby youths from different backgrounds, shape and size come to find out more about the Catholic faith and eventually journey towards baptism at the end of the process if they found themselves to be ready.
Who we are
RCIY is a big and happening family of friends, coming together to share their life & faith stories. We are made up of extremely diverse and dynamic individuals that could be grouped under the following names, sponsors, inquirers, catechumens, elects, neophytes and Friends of RCIY.
Sponsors are a group of dedicated people who are your travelling companion in your journey to discover the truth and purpose in life through faith. Sponsors are committed to be your friend, witness and guide.
Sponsors will journey with you throughout the whole of process. We are the ones who will try our sincere best to find answers to your burning questions, prepare your weekly sessions, devising activities for you to find out more about yourselves and HIM.
Contrary to popular belief, we are not your teachers but your companion and friend. We are like you, constantly learning and growing together in faith along the way.
And in case you think that inquirers, catechumens, elects and neophytes are stages of the life-cycle of an insect, why not join the group to find out.
