Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (and Teens)

“To convert somebody go and take them by the hand and guide them.” ~ St. Thomas Aquinas

For Adults who have not been baptized and are interested in exploring the Catholic faith, beliefs and practices are invited to participate in the RCIA program.

This is a 6 month program which starts with prayerful reflection  (Oct.- April), during which the inquirer participates in Catholic life and worship. The focus of the process is Christian Conversion, a change of heart in which the individual turns toward God and away from whatever is in the way of living a full Christian life.

For TeensDo you know a teen who is interested in learning more the Catholic Church? Or a teen who left the Catholic church before receiving the Sacrament of First Holy Communion or the Sacrament of Confirmation?

Teen RCIA is for High School students who have not completed the reception of their Sacraments of Initiation; or for those who may be interested in joining the Roman Catholic faith.  Offering teens the time and environment to be formed in the teachings and practices of Catholicism. Preparation for full communion into the Catholic Church through the Sacraments of Initiation.
