Would you like to know more about the Catholic Church? Are you interested in becoming Catholic? The Church has a process to welcome those who are interested in learning more about the Church or who already know that they want to become Catholic. This process is frequently referred to as RCIA.
RCIA stands for The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. It is a journey of faith to help adults grow in their relationship with God, become familiar with Catholic teachings and practices, get acquainted with people in the parish, and get involved in service within the parish or the wider community.
This program is open to all adults, including:
- Those who have never been baptized and are interested in joining the Catholic Church.
- Those who have been baptized in another Christian faith, but are seeking to join the Catholic Church.
- Those who have been baptized in the Catholic faith but who have never been fully initiated, through the Sacraments of Eucharist/Confirmation.
Once you have made an initial contact we will invite you to join others who are also inquiring about the Catholic faith. As a group, you will be able to connect your own story with the faith stories found in the scriptures, and begin to explore any questions that you may have.
If you are interested please see either our Pastor Fr. Joe, or Connie Sandlin, Director of Religious Education, after any of our weekend Masses.
We look forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have.
Sessions are also offered for children over the age of 7 who have not been Baptized.
We also invite children and teens who may have been baptized but have not had any religious instruction. Similar to the adult program, the participants meet on Wednesday evenings in addition to Sunday morning Faith Formation classes. For more information please call Connie Sandlin, 282-2290
