THINKING ABOUT BECOMING CATHOLIC?
R.C.I.A., Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process for those adults interested in learning more about the Catholic faith in order to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist.
This process is for all adults who:
- are not baptized
- were baptized in another Christian denomination
- or were baptized Catholic, but have not received the sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation
Every year we have people from all ages and walks of life come to the R.C.I.A. They come for many reasons, such as engagements, marriages, having children, personal losses or spiritual longing.
R.C.I.A. will start meeting Wednesday nights this fall beginning on September 25th. The first two months of the process are called the Inquiry Phase, where you will learn more about the Catholic faith by listening to presentations and personal reflections by a team of parishioners, by sharing scripture, and by participating in group discussions.
After the Inquiry Phase, you will discern for yourself if this feels right for you. You then decide if you wish to receive further instruction in order to receive Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil next spring. Persons baptized in other Christian denominations would only receive Confirmation and Eucharist as the Catholic Church respects these baptisms.
