Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
How does a person become a Catholic? The Catholic church warmly welcomes new members and tries to provide appropriate spiritual formation according to each person's needs. In general, people who are interested in becoming Catholic fall into one of three categories: infants and young children; people who, whether baptized or unbaptized, have had little or no affiliation with or religious training in the Christian faith; and baptized people who have been active members in other Christian denominations.
Through the Rite, the Church prepares adults and children over the age of seven to receive the Sacraments of Initiation and to "carry out the mission of the entire people of God in the church and in the world."
If you are interested in becoming Catholic or would like more information about the process of becoming Catholic, please contact the parish office at (719) 473-4633.
