Becoming Catholic

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults - RCIA

The Church recognizes the importance of this journey of discipleship and strives to provide formation that is equal to the dignity of Christ’s call. Here at Christ the King, those who wish to inquire about joining the Catholic Church can participate in our program called Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)--a series of communal prayer and preparation that culminates in the reception of the Sacrament of Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation for those who are unbaptized. This group of adults will be welcomed into full communion in the church at the Easter Vigil. Baptized Christians (including Catholics who have not received all of their Sacraments of Initiation) will receive First Holy Communion and Confirmation, and they will make a Profession of Faith. Classes meet once a week at 9:30 am on Sundays in the Saint John XXIII Room. Come any Sunday. Inquirers may begin any Sunday there is a class and will be welcomed into the church throughout the year as soon as they are ready. Parishioners should invite those they know to take a look! Catholics wanting a refresher on the faith or willing to serve as a sponsor are welcome too. For more information, contact Angela Herman at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Over a billion people call the Catholic Church home. We are a diverse collection of races, nationalities, and tongues united together as one in Jesus Christ. Strengthened by the Sacraments, the Word of God, and the ministry of the apostles' successors (the bishops), we strive to put the free gift of mercy and grace we have received from Christ into practice in our lives.

For each of us, the path to accepting new life in Christ has been unique. Some have found their way into the Church walking a 'smooth' road, and for others, the road has seemed long and hard, with many twists and turns. The reality, however, is that it does not matter what you have done or how far away from God you think you are. Christ welcomes you into His Church with open arms. His forgiveness is complete and His mercy lasts forever.
