Where life-long friendships begin & grow

Becoming Catholic


Are you interested in becoming a Catholic?

To search, to belong, to mature, to be nourished, to continue to grow, to love and be loved; these are fundamental stirrings of the human heart. Are you or someone you know hungering for a sense of belonging to God and to a Faith community? Are you or someone you know thirsting for a deeper experience of the heart and soul? Our lives are lived in seeking satisfaction of these very deep hungers.

What is RCIA

It is a wondrous journey of discovery, enlightenment, and faith. RCIA is the abbreviation for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults which is a four stage process for becoming a Catholic which includes Inquiry (Period of Evangelization and Precatechumenate); the Period of the Catechumenate, the Period of Purification and Enlightenment; and, finally, the Period of Mystagogy.

Join us for Catholic Inquiry

Please join us. Whatever the reasons for your interest, you are invited to join us and others interested in the Catholic faith. Catholic Inquiry is the first stage of the process commonly known as RCIA. You will have the opportunity to investigate the Catholic Church, ask questions, hear the questions of others, learn the true teachings of the Church, and learn the value of faith. There is no obligation or pressure. You alone decide if you want to continue with the RCIA process.
