Mass Schedule
If you are interested in becoming Catholic we offer what is called RCIA: The
formation of adults and process by which they are initiated into the Church is
• Unbaptized
...persons 18 years or older who follow a process to help them grow in
awareness to God’s call to conversion
as well as ways to respond to that call.
• Baptized in Another Christian Church...those catechized and uncatechized persons from a faith tradition other than
Catholic who are seeking full communion with the Roman Catholic Church (Eucharist and Confirmation/Full reception into the
Church by Profession of Faith).

• Baptized but uncatechized Catholic Adults...persons who were baptized as infants in the Catholic Church yet not given
any religious upbringing within the Catholic Tradition. These adults will be prepared to celebrate the sacraments of penance,
confirmation and Eucharist.

• Lacking Confirmation: These adults have been baptized, received First Communion (Eucharist), but have not been
confirmed. These adults will be prepared to celebrate Confirmation.
