Rite of Christian of Adults Sponsors & Mentors


What We Do:
The RCIA ministry guides the process by which adults are initiated into our Roman Catholic community.
Whom We Serve:
All who desire to know more about becoming a fully initiated Catholic; RCIA is for those who are unbaptized, baptized in another faith tradition, or baptized Catholic but not yet confirmed. RCIA is also for helping adult Catholics who have been away from the Church to reconnect with their faith tradition.
Time Commitment:
Attend weekly sessions on Tuesday evenings and applicable liturgical rites from mid-Septemeber through April. The Inquiry Period of RCIA for those considering becoming Catholic is from mid-September to mid-November.
