Whether you are just beginning your faith journey or have been walking with Jesus for years, we are so excited to journey through the Rite of Christian Initiation with you!
WHAT IS RCIA?
RCIA is the process by which non-Catholic adults or Catholic adults who have fallen away from the faith are brought into full communion with the Church through receiving the three Sacraments of Initiation
- Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist.
WHO IS RCIA FOR?
RCIA is for any non-Catholic (Christian or not) who is interested in becoming Catholic. It is also for any Catholic who has not received First Communion and Confirmation or who wants to go deeper into their faith.
FIRST STEP - MEET WITH JACOB
In order to begin the RCIA Process, please set up an initial meeting with Jacob Hubbard, Coordinator of Adult Formation, so he can get to know your story and help you start RCIA. Please also fill out the RCIA Inquiry Form before your initial meeting.
SECOND STEP - ATTEND RCIA MEETINGS
After you meet with Jacob, you are more than welcome to begin meeting with the group within a few weeks. Scheduled meetings are held each Monday from 7-9PM in the Parish Center. Please see below for an outline of the meeting process.
THIRD STEP - DISCERN ENTERING THE CHURCH
Throughout the process of meetings which usually last about a year, you will have many opportunities to discern whether you want to enter the Catholic Church. If you discern to become Catholic and have been through all the meetings, you will enter in at the next available date!
FOURTH STEP - ENTER THE CHURCH!
After finishing the preparation process and discerning to enter the Church, you will do so soon after! We will continue to meet after you enter to celebrate, grow closer in faith, and prepare you to live out your faith beyond RCIA.
