Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Thinking of joining the Roman Catholic Church? Great!
Is it a little overwhelming?
Where do you begin?
Well, you just begin from where you are now!
Many adults entering the Catholic Church, or those just thinking about it, follow a process known as the RCIA — the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

If you, a friend, or family member is interested in joining the Catholic Church,
or would like to find out more about Catholic beliefs and practices,
please call the Church office at 838-3369,
