Want to Become a Catholic?
Perhaps you've wondered if you should become a Catholic. Many others, drawn by a search for truth and meaning in their lives have asked themselves that same question.
Are you not sure you know enough about the Catholic Church to decide that you are interested in becoming Catholic? We invite you to watch a short video about the Catholic Church by clicking here.
R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Education of Adults) is the process by which interested non-Catholic adults become members of the Christian community of the Catholic Church. Children over the age of seven participate in the R.C.I.A. process adapted for their age.
Both the laity and the clergy provide the education in the ways of the Lord and the beliefs of the Church. Lay sponsors help support and guide the candidates in their journey of faith. The entire parish community is involved in the preparation through prayer and witness and by renewing its own commitment in faith.
Anyone who is considering becoming a part of the Catholic community of faith may enroll, including those baptized in other Christian denominations, those unbaptized, and those baptized in infancy as Catholics, but not brought up in the faith.
