RITE OF CHRISTIAN INTIATION OF ADULTS
The RCIA is the process by which the Catholic Church welcomes new adult members. It is an opportunity for those who have not been baptized or baptized Christians from other churches to learn more about the Catholic Church. Through the RCIA process, those who have not been baptized may be prepared to become members of the Catholic Church through the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist). Also through the RCIA process persons already baptized in other Christian Churches may be prepared to be received into the Catholic Church through a profession of faith and reception of the Sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Confirmation. Catholics who are baptized only and who would like to prepare to receive the Sacraments of Holy Eucharist and Confirmation or fully initiated Catholics who wish to increase their knowledge of their faith are also invited to share in the RCIA process.

NEW PARISHIONERS
We are always very happy to welcome new members to our parish family! Please contact the rectory to register with the parish. Also, we ask parishioners who are moving within our parish boundaries or out of our parish boundaries to please notify the rectory so that we can update our records.
