HAVE you been a Catholic all of your life, but never celebrated all of the Initiation Sacraments (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist)? HAVE you joined us from a different background and would now like to find out more about the Catholic Church?
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
The RCIA is a process by which people can explore the Christian faith practiced in the Roman Catholic
Tradition. The RCIA can serve as a tool to learn more about our beliefs and can also, if you desire, be the path that leads the way to joining the Catholic Church.

Help us to encourage and support them as they strive to become priests who are models of discipleship, possessors of wisdom and on fire with love for your people. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
