RCIA Adults – The way adults (18 and older) become Catholic is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, or RCIA. RCIA is a gradual process that takes place within the community of the faithful. Are you looking to join the Catholic Faith? Or, are you already Catholic but are looking to complete sacraments? RCIA is a program for Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation. Adults who simply wish to explore the possibility are also welcome.

Our classes focus on Faith Development and our relationship with God and remembering God is love. RCIA offers an opportunity to learn more about the faith, Catholic beliefs, and practices, as well as build and strengthen a loving relationship with the parish community in worship, social events and activities.
