Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

Let us pray for people who feel the call to enter our Church, seeking the Sacrament of Baptism as adults. Are you someone or do you know someone who;

• Has expressed an interest in becoming Catholic?
• Has a child over the age of seven who has not been baptized?
• Was baptized Catholic as a child, but has not celebrated the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist?

RCIA starts with a time of Inquiry. This is an opportunity to ask questions and gently explore the possibilities for your life. At the end of Inquiry you decide if you want to continue your journey into the Church. The next step is a period of instruction about what the Catholic Church believes and practices. You are welcome to participate in the process with your questions, your insights, and your faith story in a warm accepting setting.
