Interested in Becoming Catholic?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or RCIA is the way that the Catholic Church helps people prepare for life as an adult Catholic. Whether you are Catholic but have been away from the Church for some time, a non-Catholic Christian, or coming from outside the Christian tradition, RCIA is a means of preparation and pilgrimage towards a full and active participation in the Catholic Church.
We welcome infants and young children into our Church through the celebration of this sacrament on the first and second Saturdays of the month. A baptism preparation process is required and these sessions are scheduled throughout the year. For baptism of adults and children 7 years and older please look into RCIA.
First Holy Communion
First Holy Communion takes places within a two year, family oriented process, generally beginning in the first grade, which prepares children to receive First Reconciliation and First Eucharist at the end of the second grade.
Confirmation is a two year, family oriented process, beginning in the seventh grade which prepares youth for the reception of the Sacrament of Confirmation at the end of eighth grade. This sacrament strengthens the young Catholic in order to live their faith in the world, enlivened by the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
