RCIA: Becoming Catholic

A message from Deacon Rich: Sponsors needed

It’s time again to start thinking about RCIA. We will need sponsors for this new group. If you are interested in being a sponsor this year please let me know. Currently we have 6 people who are interested in the process of RCIA.

As in the past we will have a sponsors meeting on August 27th at 6:30 in the church. If you’d like to sponsor please attend this meeting.

Also, as most are aware that we don’t just assign sponsors to inquirers. A sponsor should be someone the inquiry is comfortable with and who has time to be a companion through this process.

Please let me know if you plan to sponsor and are coming to the sponsors meeting on the 27th.

What is RCIA?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a communal process of spiritual and educational formation for adults who seek to become full members of the Roman Catholic Church through a conversion of mind and heart. The process is open to all persons, regardless of religious background or philosophical persuasion, who genuinely seek, by God’s grace, to live their lives in the distinctive Catholic Christian faith.


RCIA serves:
  • Adults who are seeking baptism
  • Baptized Catholics who want to complete the Sacraments of Initiation
  • Christians from other denominations who wish to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church


When does RCIA meet?

We meet throughout the year. Beginning in September, we meet every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. with a few exceptions.


How to Get Started:

    I’m interested in the process. I’m wanting to know if it’s too late to start this this year
