Adult Baptism (age 17+)

The Catholic Church welcomes new members and tries to provide appropriate spiritual formation according to each person’s needs. Some who come to us have had little or no affiliation with, or religious training in, the Christian faith. Others have been baptized and have been active members of other Christian denominations. Either way, the process of formation for these individuals is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). 

RCIA is a communal process and involves a number of stages which lead the unbaptized, as well as baptized non-Catholics, to become full members of the Roman Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil. The entire process takes several months or, for some, a few years, but participants are invited to proceed at a pace that individually suits them. Our RCIA group meets regularly throughout the entire year. It is never a bad time to join us.
