BECOMING CATHOLIC

Welcome home to the Catholic Church! Founded by Jesus over 2000 years ago and handed down through the centuries, the Catholic Church has impacted the lives of people around the world. The word Catholic means universal, and while there are 1.2 billion Catholics in the world today there is plenty of room for you because the Catholic Church is for everyone. If you are longing for beauty, truth, peace and joy, we welcome you to find it here in the Catholic Church.

The Catholic Church has a vast history. During your preparation to enter fully into the community of the Church you will develop a greater relationship with God, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and discover the richness of the Catholic Faith. Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, who became man. He is our savior, He suffered death and rose from the dead paying our debt to sin and giving us the gift of eternal life in Him.

The R.C.I.A., or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is the process for becoming a Catholic.

This process is for adults and children (7 years of age and older) who have:

  • Not been baptized at all
  • Baptized in another Christian tradition
