Rite of Christian Initiation
(RCIA)

The RCIA is a general process of education and formation. Whether never baptized or baptized in another Christian denomination, the RCIA program helps adults to grow in their relationship with God.

Classes focus both on teachings and practices of the Catholic faith, as well as the value and application of faith in our daily lives. The process of becoming a Catholic is a four-step journey. This journey will take you through the various phases of discerning your call to become a Catholic and the living of that faith.

A sponsor accompanies each person desiring to become a Catholic. The sponsor may be chosen by the individual or provided by the parish. The sponsors offer support and guidance throughout the RCIA process and are encouraged to attend the weekly classes.

If you are interested in further information please call the parish office.
