RCIA is a class for people who would like to know more about the Roman Catholic faith. It is also for those who desire to be received in full communion to the Catholic Church.
This includes Catechumens, Candidates and Inquirers. Catechumens are people who have never been baptized by any Christian Church. Candidates are individuals who have been baptized in any Christian church (including Roman Catholics) but have not been confirmed in the Catholic Church and Inquirers are those who want to know more about the Roman Catholic Church.
If you are interested in becoming Catholic please contact the church office to discuss your preparation process to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, Eucharist and Confirmation. Each individual situation is different and needs special preparation and consideration. All information is held confidential between the Administration, the Pastor and you. Please give yourself a year to prepare to become a part of our community as individuals may need to obtain Baptism information or previous marriage information from other churches or individuals prior to the Reception of Sacraments.
Special attention is given to those individuals who find themselves in a situation of serious health concerns or medical emergencies. Please contact the Pastor to make an appointment to discuss this private situation.
