For Adults (RCIA)

PopeJohnPaulIId"The moment has come to commit all of the Church's energies to a new evangelization and to the mission ad gentes. No believer in Christ, no institution of the Church can avoid this supreme duty: to proclaim Christ to all peoples."

John Paul II

"If a man is truly and vitally converted, he has the peace of surrender without the shame of treason."

G. K. Chesterton

There are many roads home to the Catholic Church. Which road are you on?

To be fully initiated in the Catholic faith, three sacraments are necessary: Baptism, First Holy Communion and Confirmation.

People who are baptized in a non-Catholic (but Christian) church still need to complete their initiation with First Holy Communion and Confirmation. Coming to Mass on Sunday doesn't automatically make one a Catholic.

People who may have been baptized Catholic but haven't received First Holy Communion or Confirmation are welcome to complete their initiation into the Faith. Our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) class can help anyone on the road home to the Catholic Church.

Those who are preparing to enter the Catholic Church through an extended period of instruction and formation need Catholics to assist them as mentors and sponsors.

Let Jesus meet you wherever you are on the journey!
