RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)

Those interested in the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults should call Paul at the Parish Office at 386-2543.

Who comes to the RCIA?

Persons who have never been baptized as Christians.

  • Persons who have been baptized in another Christian faith tradition and are now interested in the Catholic tradition.
  • Persons who were baptized in the Catholic tradition but were not raised as Catholics.
  • Persons married to a Catholic who want to learn more about Catholic faith and life.

How long does it take to become Catholic?

The RCIA is not a program.  It is a process of preparation for the lifetime commitment that comes with becoming a Catholic.  The length of preparation time is based on the individual’s experience.

I think I'd like to begin, but I'm still hesitant. 

For more information about these sessions, or if you would like to learn more about the Catholic Church and what Catholics believe, please contact  Paul Schrems at  the Parish Office at 386-2543.
