Rite of Christian Initiation

For Adults (RCIA)

Considering joining the Catholic Church?


The Church is VERY glad you are daring enough to consider formally joining this strange and beautiful Catholic church that has lasted since Jesus established it 2000 years ago and will continue on until the end times. God has a role for you here. The journey begins exploring topics such as how we can know God, who is Jesus, what is the bible. We spend a lot of time looking at uniquely Catholic topics such as Mary and the Saints, Confession to a priest, Purgatory, and other topics. One of the primary things we do is answer your questions to try to help you along the path. Sessions generally start in fall and end the following May.
