The Catholic Church Welcomes You

Whether you are seeking Baptism into the Catholic Church, or are from another Christian tradition, we have a pathway to help you respond more deeply to the movement of God in your life and prepare you to take your place in the Catholic community. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is designed to form disciples of Jesus into the fullness of Christian life.

As you move through times of prayer and reflection, Scripture reading, questioning and storytelling, worship and works of charity, you will be accompanied by members of the parish community. Together you will make a powerful faith journey.

If you are thinking about the possibility of taking that next important step or finding out more about RCIA, you should contact the Catholic parish nearest your home here. The Pastor or others from the parish trained in RCIA can meet personally with you and answer questions that you may have. There is no commitment necessary on your part as you continue to seek where God might be calling you. You can also contact the Office of Divine Worship directly.
