Becoming Catholic - RCIA

As we emerge from lock downs, social distancing, economic distress and health concerns generated by COVID-19, perhaps you know someone who has decided that now is a good time to get right with God, by getting baptized, learning the faith, or entering the Catholic Church through confirmation. Perhaps that person is you!

Our 2024-25 RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) program, has already started and it is not too late to join. If you are 14 years or older and would like to know more about how to enter the Catholic Church or complete your confirmation, please contact Michael Faber at, or call him at (916)719—5565 to learn how you can start the process this year.



Have you ever...

  • Felt you were meant for more or that something was missing in your life?

  • Been curious about the Catholic way of life?

  • Are you an adult who has not been Baptized, received the Sacrament of Confirmation and/or First Holy Eucharist?

If you said "yes" to any of these, now is an excellent time to begin attending our Sunday morning Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) classes.  If you wish to learn about the Catholic faith with the possibility of joining the Church, we welcome you!  RCIA is a gradual process of Christian formation and our structure is "open-ended" enabling those interested to begin at any time.

Please join us on Sundays at 8:30 a.m. in the St. Jude Room

Please Note:  You do not need to have made the decision to become Catholic to start.  The first phase of RCIA is called Inquiry!  This period is your chance to have your questions answered and begin to gain an understanding of what it means to be Catholic.  You only need a commitment to be open to the experience which will allow you to make your decision about becoming Catholic later.
