Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a
process for welcoming and initiating adults into the
The program is
open to all persons, regardless of religious background,
who seek to live their lives in the Catholic faith. RCIA
welcomes people who have never been baptized as well as
adults who were baptized in another Christian tradition
and wish to become Roman Catholics.
The first step in the process of becoming a Catholic
(RCIA) is called the Inquiry step. A young husband and
father recently expressed an interest in becoming a
Catholic. As a community of faith we welcome his
and want to support his inquiry. We would like to create
a small welcoming community around him who would
journey with him through the inquiry stage. Perhaps you have friends or neighbors who
have also expressed an interest in the Catholic Church
but arenít ready to make a serious commitment.
Please encourage them to join us and come with them.
Even if you have no interested person, but are
interested yourself, please join us on Nov. 4th.
All those interested in participating are asked to
