RCIA – BECOMING A CATHOLIC

If you are considering becoming a Catholic, or you are a baptized Catholic who is considering completing your Sacraments of Initiation (Confirmation and Holy Eucharist), our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) process can help you. The RCIA is designed to offer your guidance and support in your spiritual journey towards a deepening relationship with Jesus. As you move forward through prayer, reflection, Scripture reading, storytelling, questioning, worshiping, and performing works of charity, RCIA members, along with the parish community, will accompany you on your faith journey. To decide whether this path is right for you, please contact our parish to set up a meeting with Fr. Carlos to answer any questions you may have and to discuss the process.
