We believe that God calls individuals to live the Good News Jesus proclaimed and to become his disciples as members of the Catholic Church. If you want to become Catholic, you will participate in a process called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (sometimes called RCIA or simply Christian initiation). In RCIA, you will learn about the teachings of Jesus as the Catholic Church has handed them on and put these teachings into practice by living as part of the Catholic community, serving others and praying.
If you have been baptized as an infant, but have not received further formal instruction in the Catholic Faith nor the sacraments of Confirmation or the Eucharist, RCIA is indeed for you.
RCIA is for those who have not been baptized, those baptized in another Christian tradition, those baptized as infants but who have not received formal Faith instruction, and those who wish to deepen the understanding of the Faith. Classes are held on Tuesday evenings, 7 – 9 pm in Holy Rosary Hall beginning in September. First class will be held on Tuesday, September 11.
