Becoming Catholic—RCIA

Welcome to the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, a process that offers opportunities to gather with others to learn about the Catholic faith, and receive Sacraments.  Adults who embark on this journey come from different faith backgrounds, education and experiences, and choose this path for different reasons.  We invite you to read the testimonies below, as well as answers to common questions, to discern whether God is calling you to explore the Catholic Church, and deepen your relationship with Him.

What comes next?

After the inquiry dates listed above, the RCIA process will begin in August, 2017 (date not yet determined).  If you are curious about the time commitment we invite you to review the current schedule   2016-17 RCIA

What if you can't make it to all of the classes?

We work with everyone on an individual basis regarding their personal commitments and class schedule. We ask that you plan to attend every gathering.  If you miss a class we will provide resources to help you learn about the topic that was covered.

How will this process help you decide whether you want to become Catholic?

  • You will gather with others on similar journeys, and have opportunities to share thoughts and ask questions. 
  • You will journey with a sponsor who serves as a mentor and guide in living the Catholic faith.
  • You will be supported by the RCIA Team, made up of many volunteers who come together to serve.
  • You will be given opportunities to grow in your understanding of how Catholics come to know, love and serve God.
