Thinking about becoming Catholic?

Interested in finding out more about the Catholic Faith or are you considering becoming a Catholic? The Catholic Church welcomes new members of all ages. It is never too late to become a Catholic.

We would love to hear from you and to help you on your faith journey. If you would like to find out more about the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA, a program that teaches our faith to older children and adults) RCIA is a program for those considering becoming Catholic as adults or youth that have not yet received the sacraments in the traditional years.
