Becoming Catholic (RCIA) – Adults who are interested or would like to become a member of the Catholic Church will come in by way of the Catechumenate and the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). This is usually structured as a weekly meeting with a systematic explanation of the faith along with an introduction to the Church’s teaching, morality, liturgy, and prayer.
For children who are age seven or older, they will come into the Church through the RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation of Children.) For adults and children, they will have one sponsor each. The sponsor must meet the same conditions as godparents to be sponsors, as they serve a very similar function in the service of the Church. (See section on Baptism for Sponsor Requirements) Please call the D.R.E. at the rectory for more information.
