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 email@example.com or call (805) 482·6417 ext. 331.

Are you interested in learning more about the Catholic Church? Do you have questions about what the Church teaches about suffering, hope and forgiveness? Do you wonder why we worship as we do, what happens at confession, why the Blessed Virgin Mary is so important to Catholics? These and many other topics are explored on Tuesday evenings at the parish in an informal setting. Come and see.
For more information, please contact Catherine Shadduck at (805) 482·6417 x331 or firstname.lastname@example.org
How many of your family and friends are wonderful people who are not yet Catholic? Often all it takes for them to consider the possibility of becoming Catholic is a little prompt from us. Begin by sharing a story of your own. Ask them about their beliefs. Invite them to the parish picnic on June 16, where they can experience our welcoming community for themselves.
