Interested in the Catholic faith?

Are you curious about the Catholic faith?

Have you been baptized in another Christian faith and are interested in becoming a Catholic?

Were you baptized a Catholic and would like to receive Eucharist and Confirmation?

Do you know someone who might be interested in becoming a Catholic?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, a warm welcome to you! If you, or someone you know, would like to learn more about the Catholic faith, or are considering the possibility of becoming a Catholic, the OCIA process might be exactly what you are looking for. The process to explore the Catholic faith is called OCIA (Order of Christian Initiation of Adults) By participating in OCIA (formerly known as RCIA), it does not mean you have made a commitment to become a Catholic, only to learn more about the Catholic Faith.

In the midst of many Christian faiths, what makes the Catholic faith different? The OCIA process is twofold. The first being an opportunity to uncover God’s loving presence in one’s personal life and the second, a means to help a person embrace the rich treasury of the Catholic faith. Through OCIA, we have the opportunity to share the Catholic faith with non-Catholic neighbors, friends and future parishioners. Anyone and everyone is welcome to join OCIA! Non-Catholics and Catholics alike are invited to encounter Christ in this program.
