R.C.I.A. - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (Becoming a Catholic)

Have you or someone else you know ever thought about becoming a member of the Roman Catholic faith but didn't know how to go about it?

Our RCIA Program (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) is for those individuals who have not been baptized in any faith denomination, those baptized in another Christian faith or have been baptized but have not received their First Holy Communion or Confirmation and now desire to become a full member of the Roman Catholic Faith

The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is a process through which a person(s) gradually deepens their personal relationship with Jesus Christ and lives out their faith in the Catholic community.  The RCIA process emphasizes personal conversation and commitment to the Catholic way of Life.
