Easter Vigil Baptism

Welcome to the Duke Catholic Center!  Welcome to the Church!

Are you interested in coming into the Catholic Church?
Do you want or need to receive one or all of the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist?
Do you simply want to learn more about the Church before making a more official step?

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) may be for you.  RCIA is a process during which people learn and talk about the basics of the Church and Church teaching.  We have a full RCIA program for students and Duke Catholic community members.  Generally, preparation for the sacraments starts in the fall semester but please contact us at whatever time of the year because we have flexibility to start preparation at different times.   Please contact Catherine Preston at catherine.preston@duke.edu or (919) 257-1799.
