Our parish RCIA process (“Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults”) begins with a time of inquiry where any question about the Catholic faith tradition can be asked.  After this time, which may last for several months or even years depending on the individual person, some participants will join us in a time prayer, discernment, and study to continue the process of becoming Catholic Christian.  For more information about the steps of RCIA, including the period of the Catechumenate, the Rite of Election, and the final preparatory period of Lent, click here.
