Interested in Becoming Catholic?

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a process through which adults become full members of the Roman Catholic Church.  There are several stages involved in the process, beginning with a period of “Inquiry” to find out more about Catholicism. 
RCIA meets regularly on Sundays beginning in mid-September from 9:45am-11:15am and continues up until Pentecost Sunday.
