Becoming Catholic (RCIA)

Are you someone or do you know someone who...

  • Has expressed an interest in becoming Catholic?
  • Was baptized Catholic as a child, but has not celebrated the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist?
  • Was raised Catholic but feels rusty on the basics of the faith?

We offer an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn more about the Catholic faith. Sessions focus on the teachings and experience of Church and prepare individuals who choose to do so celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist during the Easter season. You are encouraged to participate in the process with your questions, your insights, and your faith story in a warm accepting setting. Meetings will be Wednesdays 7-9 PM starting September 30, 2020. Please fill out the short sign-up form below to get started!

What is RCIA?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which Protestant Christians, unbaptized individuals, or Catholics who have not yet received all sacraments of initiation are welcomed into full communion with the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church founded by Jesus Christ. This Adult Catechesis is the means of preparing individuals to go through these rites and deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and his Church.

Questions or for more information, please contact Fr. Thomas Herge at [email protected] or call 614-885-7814 and ask for Fr. Herge (pronounced like “Fergie”).

Children 7 and older interested in receiving sacraments of initiation can learn more about the Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC) on our Children and Youth Catechesis page.
