The journey of faith begins with your questions…

Are you interested in joining the Catholic Church?  Do you have questions about the Church and your faith?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, RCIA, is a program for people interested in exploring and possibly joining the Catholic Church. It begins with a simple inquiry period where questions lead to exploration.
