HOW DOES SOMEONE BECOME A CATHOLIC?

If you are interested in learning about the Catholic Church, in what we believe and how we seek to live our faith in Jesus Christ, or if you would like to take steps to join us in faith, you are invited to contact a parish in your area PARISHES
You may speak to the parish priest or a member of the pastoral staff.  Those who have little knowledge of the Catholic faith and have not been baptized, are usually invited to participate in a process of formation in the parish which may take several months, culminating with the sacraments of Christian Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist) at the annual Easter Vigil.  This process is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Those who are already baptized in other Christian denominations, but who would like to enter into the Full Communion of the Catholic Church, generally follow a similar process, though it may be shorter in duration.  Those already baptized complete their Christian initiation in the Catholic Church by celebrating the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist. We are always eager to share our faith and so, welcome your inquiry!  We look forward to hearing from you.
