RCIA (St. Mary's RCIA Program Information)
RCIA, or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is the process by which people who are interested in learning about the Catholic Faith can attend classes and have the opportunity to become members of the Catholic Church. Click here for the brochure.
RCIA is for adults who:

Have never been baptized
Were baptized a different Christian faith and now seek entrance into the Catholic Church
Are baptized Catholics who have not yet received the Sacraments of First Communion or Confirmation
Are married to a Catholic and attend Mass and would like to take the next step to become a member of the Catholic Church
Are Catholic but want to learn more about their Faith
RCIA is a spiritual formation process beginning in September and ending with initiation into the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil. Classes are taught by Luke Gietman and various volunteers. These classes are for anyone with interest no matter your current denomination. Please encourage your friends and neighbors with interest in Catholicism to come by.
