Our Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is here to help those seeking to become Catholic and join the Church. This includes:
- Any adult not yet baptized and who wishes to become Catholic.
- Any adult baptized in another Christian Church who wishes to become Catholic.
- Any adult baptized in the Catholic Church, but not raised in the faith and who seeks complete initiation (Confirmation and First Eucharist).
Formation for RCIA includes sessions that explore the Catholic faith, prayer, and community life in the parish. Sessions typically begin in the Fall and meet until Easter. However, the journey to reception into the Church is unique to each individual. Our parish strives to help you learn to respond to the call—not just for the moment of Baptism, but every day.
We can also help with Rite of Christian Initiaion for Children (RCIC), which is designed for children in first through twelfth grades preparing for Baptism and for children in third grade and older preparing for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Because faith formation requires family involvement, we encourage family members to participate in this process.
If you’re seeking more information, please contact Kay Schatche, Director of RCIA, by email or call (608) 231-4610.
