Becoming Catholic

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

people becoming catholic

The process of conversion occurs when one seeks a greater relationship with Jesus Christ through his Church. Adults who desire to become full members of the Catholic Faith are encouraged to inquire about the Church and the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.).

The R.C.I.A. enables participants to journey through various stages of spiritual formation, study, and prayer.

New Catholics are initiated at the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday, when the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist are celebrated.

If you, or someone you know, is drawn to the Catholic Faith, and have discerned the call of God in your life, please call the rectory office. (815) 726-4031
