Initiation into the Catholic Church

As children: If your children were baptized in another Christian faith and you would like them to now be part of the Catholic Church, please call our Christian Formation Office. Depending on the age of your children, there are different routes to take to welcome them into the church.

As adults: If you have never been baptized, or if you were baptized in another Christian church, or were baptized in the Catholic Church, but never raised in the faith, we welcome you. A process we call RCIA (the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is for you. Inquiry sessions are held to let you ask your questions and help you decide if the Catholic Church is the church for you. If you decide to pursue reception into the church, or if you wish to complete your initiation, we prepare you for Baptism (if you have not already been baptized), Confirmation and Eucharist. Contact our Director of Christian Formation for more information.
