RCIA - Becoming Catholic
The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the process by which adults become Catholic. It is called a "process" because it is a time of discerning and ritualizing stages of conversion within the faith journey of adults. It is called a "Rite" because, starting with the Period of the Catechumenate, each period of the process is introduced by a rite which is celebrated with the worshiping community.
The RCIA Process is open to those who have never been baptized, those who have been baptized in another Christian denomination and are interested in becoming Catholic, and those who were baptized Catholic, but have never received the Sacraments of Confirmation or Eucharist. Those who participate in the process are called Catechumens if they have never been baptized or Candidates if they have already been baptized.

Adult Confirmation Classes
Many adult Catholics, for one reason or another, have never been confirmed. If you have been baptized Catholic and received Communion, but were never confirmed, please give Pat Novak a call at the Parish Office for more information and to register for this process.
