Becoming Catholic

"Whoever drinks the water I shall give will
never thirst; the water I shall give will become in him
a spring of water welling up to eternal life."

— John 4:14

St. Augustine of Hippo (354–430 A.D.) eloquently described the relentless human quest for God: "You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you."

The Catholic Church believes that the meaning and purpose of life are found in Jesus Christ: "I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly" (John 10:10). Furthermore, the fullness of Christ resides in the Catholic Church: in her doctrine, sacraments, and moral teachings.

The parish invites all who are searching for greater happiness and meaning to explore the Catholic faith. For those who wish to join the Church, a period of prayer, learning, and preparation is available. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) begins in September and ends in April.* Classes take place on Tuesday from 6:00 to 7:30pm.

For more information, contact Elaine Taylor in the Parish Office.

* Depending on the circumstances (including whether one is already baptized or not), the preparation will last up to two years.
