Becoming Catholic - RCIA

This short video provides a basic overview of the Christian initiation process, answers questions of those seeking to be baptized, and includes personal reflections of those recently baptized.

Do you know someone who:

• Has not been baptized and would like to be baptized into the Catholic Faith;

• Is a baptized non-Catholic Christian and would like to become Catholic;

• Has been baptized Catholic but has not received the Sacraments of Confirmation and First Holy Communion?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which individuals become Catholic and receive the sacraments of initiation — Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist.  It also involves the parish community through a renewal in faith as it prepares and welcomes new members into the Church.  

We also adapt the process for children over the age of 7 who have not been baptized.  Parents or guardians may call to obtain more information. 

Curious or Interested?

We would be happy to discuss the process and answer any questions you might have.  If you have ever thought about becoming Catholic and would simply like to discuss this further.
