RICA is a process through which unbaptized persons who have the desire to become members of the Catholic Church, along with persons baptized in other Christian traditions, who wish to embrace the Catholic faith, enter a faith journey which will lead to their reception as full members of the Catholic Community at the Easter Vigil.

  • If you or someone you know wishes to join the Catholic Church or simply desires to learn more about the Church, please call the Parish Office at 761-1167.

The Catholic Church connects us to God and each other, as members of the one Body of Christ. We trace our roots as a family of faith back to St. Peter and the Apostles. All our sacraments bring us great comfort and joy, and in a special way, the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Eucharist. We rejoice in our connections with the saints who have gone before us, and the saints-in-training who sit beside us.

Do you know someone, perhaps a friend or family member, who may be interested in learning more about the Roman Catholic faith? Or would you like to learn more about membership in the Catholic Church?

We have a dedicated team of clergy and parish members ready to discuss our beliefs and answer your questions. In the coming months, we will offer teachings on the Holy Trinity, the Bible, Catholic Tradition, Sacraments, Morality and Catholic practices. Later, if you desire, there will be an opportunity for you to consider full communion with the Catholic Church.

Get connected through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Contact the Parish for more information.
