Baptized Catholic but Missing Confirmation, Eucharist?

Interested in Learning about the Catholic Faith?

Are you in a Sacramental Marriage?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process through which adults join or complete their initiation into the Roman Catholic Church. RCIA is for three groups of adults:

  1. Those who are not baptized.
  2. Those who were baptized into another Christian denomination and wish to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church.
  3. Baptized Catholics who were not fully formed in the Catholic faith and have not completed their initiation: those who have not received the Sacraments of Confirmation and/or Eucharist.

If you are missing Sacraments, not in a Church marriage, or thinking about becoming Catholic, please join our weekly English or Spanish adult faith formation classes.

RCIA in English will be held on Tuesdays, 7:00pm-8:30pm beginning September 10th, 2024 in the Parish Office.

RCIA in Spanish will be held on Mondays, from 7:00pm- 8:30 pm beginning September 9th, 2024 in the Parish Office.

***Please provide your Birth Certificate and, if applicable, your Baptismal Certificate dated within the last 6 months***

For couples married outside of the Church, our priests are willing to help you prepare for the Sacrament of Matrimony, an important step to receiving the other Sacraments and living the Catholic faith as a family. Please contact the parish office and set an appointment to meet with a priest.
