Becoming Catholic (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)
For adults and children who have reached the age of reason (age seven), entrance into
the Church is governed by the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process of gradual stages along the path to full initiation in the Catholic Church. It is a process of both internal and external transformation and conversion helping us to grow in holiness.
For more information on these programs, please contact our Pastoral Associate, Ryan Mainard

Prayer is an aspiration of the heart, it is a simple glance directed to heaven, it is a cry of gratitude and love in the midst of trail as well as joy; finally, it is something great, supernatural, which expands my soul and unites me to Jesus.
--St.Therese of Lisieux
We value relationships! We encourage all our members to continue to grow as disciples of Jesus. We invite members to get involved in a group. Discipleship groups meet with various regularity from a great way to build relationships, grow closer to Christ and get connected.
