Become Catholic

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.

Get Confirmed

Confirmation is for you if...

...you have been baptized into the Catholic faith and have already received the Sacrament of Holy Eucharist (or First Communion).

...you desire to complete the initiation process into the Catholic community and to strengthen and deepen your faith.

...you seek to put faith into action by being a Christian witness to others.

Our Confirmation Program is available throughout the year.  You will be paired with a catechist to meet one-on-one around your schedule.  Confirmation is celebrated each Spring.
