Joining the Church and becoming Catholic


The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process through which interested adults and older children are gradually introduced to the Roman Catholic faith and way of life.


The RCIA is a communal process and involves a number of stages punctuated by liturgical rites to aid and assist the potential convert toward the final rite, usually at the Easter Vigil at which time
they will become full members of the Roman Catholic Church. The entire process takes several months, (ideally a minimum of one complete liturgical year), but participants are generally invited to proceed at a pace which suits them individually. 


A new RCIA session will begin on SUNDAY, September 13, 2020 at the 5 pm mass. Baptized Catholics completing their Christian initiation with Eucharist and Confirmation, those baptized in another faith or not baptized at all, come "light your heart on fire" and begin the RCIA process with us! A separate curriculum will be utilized for children and youth.Please use the contact information to the right for questions about joining this process or being a sponsor.
