Interested in Becoming Catholic?
RCIA—Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (and children seven years and above)
Are you interested in learning more about the Catholic faith? The RCIA program is for persons at the age of reason (seven years or older) who are not Catholic, but have an interest in becoming Catholic; or for those who are baptized Catholic, but not brought up in the Catholic faith; or, for anyone (including non-practicing Catholics) interested in learning more about the Catholic faith. Interested persons are instructed in the Catholic doctrine and practices to enable them to discern better the call of God.
The usual length of preparation is about one year but may vary, and the sessions are typically conducted weekly, on Sundays, following the 8:30am Mass.
