Adults desiring to become Catholic are invited to participate in the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults. This process, marked by stages and rites, offers the person the ability to explore the Catholic Faith leading to a commitment to become a Catholic Christian.
In an effort to meet the needs of those seeking to discover more about the Catholic Faith, we offer a variety of options for those interested. We meet weekly, on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00pm in the Captain’s Cabin. There are other available meeting options for those who are in need of more flexibility.
If you or someone you know wishes to learn more about the OCIA process, please call the parish office to set up an initial meeting with the director. The process is normally about one year depending on individual circumstances.
OCIA is for those adults who have never been baptized, those baptized in another Christian tradition and for those baptized Catholic but who have not completed their initiation sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation. Catholics of the parish are also invited to attend the sessions to learn more about their Faith
