Building lives together
Becoming a Catholic
Our parish offers a year-round process for adults who wish to become a member of the Catholic faith. This process is known as the “RCIA”: Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
The RCIA process is for you if:
- You have never been baptized; OR
- You have been baptized in another Christian tradition; OR
- You were baptized as an infant in the Catholic Church, but never received Holy Communion and Confirmation
Sacramental celebrations for adults take place each year at Easter. Adults usually spend 12 to 18 months in the RCIA process before receiving the sacraments.
You may begin the process at any time. Contact Paula Dougherty at firstname.lastname@example.org or 714-528-1487, ext 211.
WELCOME HOME: An Open Door for Returning Catholics
Were you raised Catholic but seldom come to church anymore? Are you a Catholic who now feels separated from the Church? Would you like to know more about the Catholic Church as it is today? Would you like to feel at home in the Catholic Church again?
No matter how long you’ve been away and no matter the reason, we invite you to consider renewing your relationship with the Catholic Church. Perhaps this fall can be a time of resurrected hope on your faith journey. Someone is waiting to listen to your story.
Please consider joining us on Tuesday, January 14, 2014 at 7:15 pm in the Parish Center, room 3&4. (Continuing for five more Tuesdays)
