Interested in Becoming Catholic?

“Come and see.”

John 1:39

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a process for bringing into the Catholic Church both those who have never been baptized and those who were baptized in a non-Catholic church. RCIA is also the best way for adult Catholics who have never been confirmed to prepare for that final Sacrament of Initiation.

St. Mary’s will begin a new RCIA class Tuesday, August 22, 2017 and we invite everyone who would like to join the Catholic Church, be confirmed, or anyone who is simply interested in learning about the teachings and customs of Catholic Christianity to come and join us. RCIA is more than a class; it is a gradual introduction to the customs, beliefs, practices and devotions of Catholicism. There is no obligation – only an opportunity to learn. We hope you will join us!

RCIA meets on most Tuesdays from September through April from 6:15PM-7:45PM in Smith Hall (2nd floor).  Smith Hall is located on the corner of Park Ave. and York St. between our historic Old St. Mary’s Church and the Courthouse.
