Becoming Catholic – Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

What do you say when a friend or family member asks you about, or comments about, the Catholic Church?  For many of us, that’s a little uncomfortable.  Yet, it can often be a manifestation of someone reaching out in search of a deeper relationship with God.  And they’re reaching out to you!  Fear not.  Throughout the entire year, members of the Newman RCIA team are available to sit with anyone who is interested in learning more about what it is to be Catholic, why we do what we do, what is involved in exploring becoming a part of the church… So, your response to these questions can be very simple and very effective… invite them to an inquiry session.  You’re welcome to come, too, if you wish to support, to learn, to be part of another person’s walk of faith.  This can bring amazing growth into your own faith life.

RCIA session are generally held in conjunction with the 11AM Mass on Sundays until 2PM with lunch provided.  The application to be considered for the program can be downloaded here:
