How to Become a Catholic
If you've ever considered joining the Church or know someone who might, this article explains how...
Becoming a Catholic is relatively easy, although it will take some time. And the first step is very easy: just give us a call. We’ll explain the simple process to you and tell you how to learn more about our faith. Then we’ll get you started on one of the most profound and joyful experiences of your life.
A person is brought into full union with the Catholic church by the reception of three sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation and the Holy Eucharist. For adults who were not baptized into the Catholic Church at birth, preparation is necessary before receiving the Sacraments.
This preparation is called the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA for short), and usually takes several months. This timing allows you ample opportunity to study our faith, learn what it’s all about, and be ready to receive the Sacraments and welcomed into our community at Easter.
The first step is simple: just call the parish office at 347-6108 and tell us you want to know more about becoming a Catholic. We’ll be delighted to hear from you and share our faith with you.
