More Information…

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process whereby adults enter the Catholic Church. RCIA classes are held weekly and over the course of several months those who attend the RCIA classes are educated on what the Catholic Church believes and are given the oppurtunity to ask question about those beliefs.

The RCIA Program is for if you:

1)   Are not Baptized and are 8yrs old and older
2)   Baptized in another Christian faith and wish to become Catholic

Just because you start RCIA, doesn’t mean you are committed to converting to Catholicism. If you are merely curious about what Catholicism is, please feel free to come. All are welcome.

To begin the process of discernment, please download and complete the appropriate Inquirer Form found on this page.   If you do not have a copy of your baptism certificate and cannot get one please download and complete the Affidavit of Baptism.  Once we have received your Inquiry form you will be notified of class dates and times for the coming cycle.
