are you ready to become catholic?
And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. - Acts 2:42
RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Its purpose is to introduce you to a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ within the context of His One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. RCIA is a process of conversion, a process in which we draw closer to Christ through His teaching, through His liturgy, and especially through His sacraments. Every individual starts this journey with different motivations, different backgrounds, different degrees of knowledge and devotion to Jesus. Some who come have never even heard the Great Story of God’s salvation through Jesus Christ, or have never even begun that journey of salvation through Baptism. Some have been baptized into Christ, but may not be Roman Catholic, and desire to join His Church in a spirit of unity seeking the fullness of truth. Some may be drawn in by a relative, a fiancé, or even a friend. Whatever your background, everyone is welcome.
HOW DO i GET STARTED?
To start off, we would like to meet with you and get to know you and also introduce you to RCIA. As mentioned above everyone who comes to us is somewhere different on their journey and we would like to ensure that we are able to accommodate you on that journey into the Catholic Church as much as possible.
