This process is for preparing adults wishing to be Baptized and/or Confirmed in the Catholic faith. It involves the spiritual and religious formation of unbaptized adults or adults previously baptized in another Christian tradition and takes place step by step over a period of time. There is an adapted process for unbaptized children, ages 7 and above. The entire parish has a role in initiating persons into full membership. Meetings are held year-round and offer an opportunity for adults to receive instruction in Catholic beliefs as well as the opportunity to meet others willing to share their faith journey. Anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic way of life is welcome to come; as well as any Catholic willing to share time in prayer as part of the RCIA team. Volunteers are needed to be team members, sponsors, babysitters, hospitality, and share faith. Training and resource materials are provided. For more information contact Deacon Jim McGoff at
