Becoming Catholic

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

We welcome anyone thinking of joining our Catholic faith and we invite anyone who has not yet been Baptized to particpate in our RCIA program. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a journey of faith during which the participants seek a conversion of heart and develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This is a gradual process and takes places within the community of the faithful. As members of the Christian community, we manifest the Lord's presence to those who are seeking to join us in faith, by our words and by our gestures of hospitality. It is together with the worshiping community that we celebrate the Rites that are a part of the Initiation process. The RCIA process looks to the gathered community for support in prayer and evangelization. Those who journey in the RCIA process will recieve the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil. 

For those who were Baptized in other Christian faith traditions, or who were Baptized Catholic, and are seeking the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist, we invite you to participate in our Sacrament Preparation program for Adults. 

For information on either of these programs please contact Pat White
