The Call to Conversion R.C.I.A. – Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

The RCIA invites you on a beautiful journey of faith to explore what it means to be Catholic and the very special and personal relationship to which Jesus is calling you! If you have never been baptized, been baptized in another Christian faith, or baptized Catholic but never received Eucharist and/or Confirmation and you feel you are being called to something more, then this journey is for you. You are welcome to explore that call with us. Please contact John Ring at 567-1609 for information.
