Becoming Catholic

Are you or is someone that you know interested in becoming Catholic? Or have you been baptized but never Confirmed? If so, we invite you to participate in our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) program.

RCIA is the process by which non-baptized persons enter into the Catholic Church or baptized persons of other Christian denominations enter into full communion with the Catholic Church. It is a months-long program of catechesis, fellowship, prayer, and ritual that engages the candidates more deeply in faith. All are welcome to attend.

Our 2023-2024 RCIA program will begin on Monday evening, August 28th at 7 pm in the Clunan Center. Meetings will be held weekly on Monday evenings from 7:00 – 8:30 pm.

Although no pre-registration is required to attend, if you are interested in participating we would like some information from you in advance which will help us adjust the program to better meet your needs. Please choose either the ADULT form or the CHILD/TEEN form. (Teenagers are welcome to attend but must be accompanied by an adult at each session.)

The Church welcomes inquirers at all times, even during those months when the formal RCIA sessions are not scheduled. Someone from the RCIA team will be happy to meet with anyone at any time of the year. Please contact us to let us know of your interest.
