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

Greetings to the St. John's family and visitors!  


While we are at church, Archbishop Sample has requested that we follow the most recent mask mandate. The mandate is that people 5 years and older need a mask.  There are many reasons why people want to wear or not wear masks, but Fr. Maxy asks all of us to wear one in obedience to the direction of Archbishop Sample. Please bring a mask with you when you come to encounter Christ at Mass this weekend. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
