God calls and we respond. Through the process of Christian initiation, men and women at all stages of the faith journey come together in a non-threatening and non-pressured atmosphere to learn more about the Catholic Church. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process by which men and women become members of the Catholic Church.


Is God calling you?  Are you ready to respond?


Then RCIA may be just what you are searching for!  If you are an adult who has never been baptized, has been baptized in another Christian tradition, or baptized Catholic but never received further Sacraments of Initiation, then RCIA is a great place to start your journey of faith.  Or perhaps you simply want to learn what the Catholic Church teaches or enhance your faith by learning more. 


RCIA classes will meet each Saturday evening at 5:00 p.m. in the Loyola Room beginning September 15th.  Is God calling you?  We invite you to respond!
