Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as children of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission. (CCC 1213)

Adults who wish to become members of the Catholic Faith do so through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). This program serves to welcome, inform, love, catechize, and sacramentalize those adults drawn to the Catholic Faith and leads to full membership in our Church. The process takes a number of months to complete and includes attendance at Sunday Mass and a weekly RCIA meeting.
