Thinking of joining the Roman Catholic Church? RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, the process by which an adult person enters into full communion with the Catholic Church. Candidates are gradually introduced into the beliefs and practices of the Church.

Who should attend RCIA?

  • Catechumens (unbaptized persons) and baptized Christians who wish to become Catholic, and/or are interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith.
  • Baptized Catholics who have not received other Sacraments (Communion, Reconciliation, Confirmation), and/or have been away from the Catholic Church for an extended period of time.
  • Any non-Catholic who wishes to learn more about the Catholic Faith.

Classes meet September through Easter. If interested in becoming Catholic, please call the office 601-924-6344 or email at
