Becoming A Catholic / RCIA
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a process of welcoming those people, 16 years of age or older, who may wish to explore baptism as an adult, complete their initiation as Catholics through the sacraments of confirmation and Eucharist, or having been baptized in another Christian tradition, wish to be received into full communion with the church. Classes begin in the fall of each year; individuals, with their sponsors, gather together each week to study and prepare for their initiation into the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil Mass.
The RCIA process respects the personal and unique journey of each individual; each person journeys at his or her own pace. The process not only includes study and liturgy, but initiation to apostolic action and life in the community. Please contact the Parish Office for more information.
Rite of Christian Initiation for Children & Youth (RCIC)
This process can also be adapted for children age 6-16 who wish to be baptized into the Church or have been baptized in another Christian Church and wish to become full members of the Catholic Church. Please contact the Parish Office for more information.
