Interested in Becoming a Catholic? (RCIA – RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS

We are grateful to be Catholic, and we’re glad you are too. There is so much to love about Jesus and His Catholic Church, and it is infinitely important that we share this Good News with others!

Jesus shows us a glimpse of the reward for our faithfulness to Him and to spreading the Gospel when He says in the Scripture, “Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world…” (Matthew 25:34). God calls us to tend to the physical needs of our brothers and sisters, but also to their spiritual needs. People are hungry and thirsty for the truth… if we don’t bring it to them, who will?

As baptized Catholics we are all called to spread the Gospel and bring everyone to Christ, as Pope Francis quotes. “In virtue of their baptism, all the members of the People of God have become missionary disciples (cf. Mt28:19). The new evangelization calls for personal involvement on the part of each of the baptized. Every Christian is challenged, here and now, to be actively engaged” (EG, 120).


Chances are you know someone - maybe many people - who have left the Catholic Church. Often, all they are waiting for is an invitation that can be extended to them by ordinary followers of Jesus Christ, like you and me.  If you do know someone, please call the parish office. RCIA classes will begin mid-September. Classes are held every Tuesday. Together, we will explore the Catholic faith and prepare for the sacraments of initiation, which are celebrated at the Easter Vigil.   RCIA TEAM
