Becoming Catholic

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults | RCIA

RCIA – The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults – is the ancient process whereby adults come to enter the Catholic Church.  It is a spiritual journey involving prayer, study and fellowship.  The goal of RCIA is to learn more about the Catholic faith, to deepen one’s love for God, and to walk more closely as a disciple of Jesus.

Classes are held weekly beginning in the fall and lasting through Easter.  Who can attend?

  • Non-Catholics wanting to join the Catholic Church
  • Non-Catholics interested in learning more about the Catholic faith
  • Catholics who need to prepare for a sacrament (such as Confirmation or Matrimony)
  • Catholics who want to grow deeper in their faith
