Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

I want to become a Catholic!

Are you an unbaptized adult, seeking full communion with Jesus in the Catholic Church? Or are you already a baptized Christian, ready to officially join the Catholic Church? We invite you to join our preparation program called "Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults" or "RCIA." 

Preparation to become Catholic takes about six months, and runs from September through Easter Sunday. RCIA is designed to prepare you to receive the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist) and to live out your life as a Christian and a member of the Church.

RCIA meets every Monday from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM in the Parish Hall.  There are three aspects to preparation:

  1. Growing in knowledge of the Faith
  2. Preparing for the Sacraments
  3. Practicing a life of charity and prayer

Are you ready join the family of Christ?  Contact:

I want my children to become Catholic

We welcome your family! We offer individualized preparation for children between the ages of 8 and 14, and who have completed 2nd grade, whether baptized or unbaptized. Children prepare to receive the Sacraments of Baptism and Eucharist. 

Reception of the Sacraments is not to be seen as an end or a graduation, but rather the gateway to a lifelong commitment to spiritual growth and the love of God and neighbor.    

Ready for your child or children to become Catholic? Contact:
