New members are welcomed into the Catholic faith through the RCIA, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Through this process, seekers encounter Jesus in scripture, in prayer, in liturgical rites and through interaction with the parish community. They gather for weekly catechetical sessions to inquire about what the Catholic Church teaches, and to discern how they are being called to be disciples of Jesus, each in his or her own particular circumstance.
There is a corresponding process adapted for school-aged children, middle-schoolers and teens who are seeking baptism.
If you would like to know more about the RCIA process, for adults or for children, please email Catherine Shadduck at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (805) 482·6417 ext. 331.
