Becoming Catholic

Interested in becoming Catholic? St. Mary and Sons of Zebedee would love to walk with you through your journey. Adults who wish to come into the Church go through a process known as “The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults” (RCIA). RCIA may be right for you if you are:

  • Unbaptized: The primary focus of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is on those who are not already Christian and have not been catechized.
  • Baptized, but uncatechized: Those who have been baptized either as Roman Catholics or as members of another Christian community, but have not received further catechetical formation or instruction. These individuals typically have not celebrated confirmation or Eucharist.
  • Seeking full Catholic Communion: These are baptized, practicing Christians from other denominations, who seek entry into the Catholic Church

RCIA is not for adult candidates for confirmation who have already received their First Eucharist in the Catholic Church. They should have their own formation process.

Start the Process

If you are interested in RCIA, please contact the St. Mary and Sons of Zebedee parish office or speak with Father Miniatt after Mass.
