RCIA (the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) is the process the Catholic Church uses to help non-Catholics learn more about the Church and, if they desire it, actually become Catholic. It is also use to help bring returning Catholics up to speed on the Catholic teaching. Each class helps you explore the Church, her teachings, and the profound meanings behind everything we do as Catholics.
