Each year, we guide and walk with a group of people who are thinking about becoming Catholic, and those who want to explore the faith and ask questions. This process is called the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults, or OCIA (previously called RCIA)
OCIA could be helpful if:
- You want to be baptized in the faith
- You want to join us from another faith
- You are a baptized Catholic, but haven’t received the Sacrament of Communion and/ or Confirmation
- You are a Catholic who wants to deepen your understanding of the Catholic faith
The important thing is to pray, and listen – to stay open to the many ways in which God may be calling to you. The group meets weekly October through March to reflect on the Sunday readings, learn about the Catholic faith tradition, and prayerfully discuss how it all applies to their lives. Those who decide to receive Baptism, Eucharist/Communion, and/or Confirmation will be fully welcomed into the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil beginning at 8 p.m. on March 30th, 2024.
