Becoming a Catholic

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process designed for adults who:

  • Are interested in becoming a Catholic from another faith tradition
  • Have been baptized in the Catholic faith but have not received any other Sacraments
  • Have not been baptized in any particular faith tradition and are interested in becoming a Catholic

The RCIA process allows you to journey through the full liturgical year, culminating in reception of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist) at the Easter Vigil.

Returning to the Catholic Faith

If you are looking for a way back to Catholicism and are seeking guidance or you need/want to receive sacraments, we are here to help you. For more information, contact our Director of Religious Education at or
