The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a journey for welcoming adult newcomers and children age 7 and above (inquirers) into the Roman Catholic Church.

Becoming Catholic is one of life’s most profound and joyous experiences. Some are blessed enough to receive this great gift while they are infants, and, over time, they recognize the enormous grace that has been bestowed on them. Others enter the Catholic fold when they are older children or adults. The following will be helpful in helping to discern this joyful journey.

If any of the following describe your journey, please contact:
