Are You Thinking About the Catholic Church?

There are many reasons for considering becoming Catholic. It can start out with having children you would like to register in one of our Catholic schools. Our process invites participants to develop deeper reasons. Perhaps you have a desire for your family to be united in faith. Perhaps you want to be part of a community of people worshipping God together. Maybe you are seeking greater meaning and purpose in your life. Some people may be ready to seek answers to their questions about God, about Jesus Christ, and about the Church. Maybe you have always thought about being baptized but that just never happened, for one reason or another. Possibly you have been baptized but would like to be confirmed and to receive Holy Communion.


For these reasons, and others that are uniquely yours, it may just be the perfect time for you to consider The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Almost all Catholic parishes have some form of this process, which usually takes place over a period roughly coinciding with the school year. These are the phases:


1. Inquiry (Sept – Nov): A period of time to discuss basic questions of faith, about who is Jesus, and about the Church.

2. Catechumenate (Dec – Feb): A time and process of deeper learning about the faith and growing in relationship to Jesus Christ and his Church.

3. Enlightenment (Feb – Mar): A final period of preparation for the initiation sacraments at Easter, coinciding with the period the Church calls Lent.

4. Post Easter (April – June): Time for a deeper dive into what it means to live the Christian faith.
