RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Inquiry sessions have begun!
If you have interest in receiving some or all of the Sacraments of Initiation in the Catholic Church (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist).  This program is for you! 

The first several meetings (called Inquiry) are designed to help you understand the faith more clearly and give you an opportunity to ask questions (inquire) about anything that you are unsure of.  We will help lead you through!  There is no commitment required, just a desire to learn more.
