Becoming Catholic (RCIA)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults  is for those who want to become Catholic and attend classes to understand the nature of sacraments and God’s plan of salvation. These classes culminate in becoming baptized at Easter vigil. We are always accepting new students!

RCIA is changing its name to OCIA. In November 2019, the Bishops of the United States passed the revised English translation of the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults. On November 17th, 2021, the Bishop’s passed an edited version for both English and Spanish and sent it on to Rome for approval. We expect to see changes in 2023. This will focus not only on new words, but on a renewed appreciation of the initiation process and rites. This change of name will take a while for everyone to get used to, so we are starting early!
