The RCIA is a process through which teens and adults who wish to become fully initiated Catholics journey together towards full initiation and reception of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist. Non-baptized persons as well as persons who have been previously baptized in another Christian faith are invited to explore the process.
There are four periods for the unbaptized which typically lasts for one year or more. The first period is called Inquiry and as the name implies, it is a time to ask questions and to discern whether you truly seek initiation into the Church. We welcome you to join the inquiry and no commitments are required. Come join us for fellowship and find out what Catholicism is all about! Inquiry classes typically meet on Wednesday evenings, but there is some flexibility.
For those who have been baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in another Christian Church, the process is usually briefer. These persons would be received into the Church and partake of the sacraments of Confirmation and First Eucharist at a Sunday Mass after a suitable time of preparation.
