Become a Catholic

Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

This is a process for adults who are considering the possibility of becoming Roman Catholic. This includes the unbaptized, baptized Christians who seek full communion and Catholics who have not received the sacraments of Eucharist and/or Confirmation.

RCIA is a process. It is a community event, a ministry of witness and hospitality, ongoing and multi-dimensional. This process restores the baptismal focus of Lent. It reinstates the Easter Vigil as the honored time for initiation. It is a step by step journey punctuated by corresponding rituals. This process includes an adaption for children and youth who need to prepare for Baptism.

Adults who were baptized Catholic and would like to be Confirmed are also welcome to have a no-strings-attached conversation with a member of the team.

All inquiries are welcome. Call the Faith Formation Office for further information or to register.
