Ready to enter into or form a closer relationship with Jesus Christ? Are you a Catholic who needs to make a sacrament of initiation (Baptism, Eucharist or Confirmation) or learn more about your faith? RCIA is the place for you!
RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. Our team members facilitate the faith journey by encouraging a deeper relationship with God and to our community. Sessions culminate with the sacraments of initiation at our beautiful Easter Vigil Mass. We also welcome Catholics who want to learn more about their faith or would like to act as sponsors.
Visit our sacraments page to learn about initiation programs for teens and children.
The media center has a wide variety of materials relevant to faith formation, community outreach, spiritual growth and life issues. Topics range from art to world religions and include children's books and DVDs. Visit the Media Center page for hours and details. Online resources include a video series about the Mass, eight short videos that provide a good way to refresh yourself or help explain it to family or friends.
