Interested in Becoming Catholic?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, RCIA may be for you.
RCIA, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a faith formation process geared to helping pre-teens, teenagers, and adults who wish to become Catholic. RCIA guides you through the teachings of Jesus Christ, as preserved and handed down over the last two millennia by the Catholic Church. It combines group-based lessons with individualized attention to help you develop in the faith, no matter what your background is or what your current life situation may be.
The Roman Catholic Church and the members of Saint Anne's parish welcome you in your faith journey. If you, or someone you know, are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith and what it means to be a Catholic, then contact a member of the RCIA Team at St. Anne's parish.

The RCIA Process
RCIA is a structured process that brings individuals to live the Christian way of life consistent with the teachings of the Catholic Church. It combines prayer, Scripture study, and instruction in Catholic Christian doctrine in a way that is tailored to each person. The process may take as little as one year or as much as several years of inquiry and spiritual formation, depending on where the individual may be in his or her faith journey and how much Christian religious education he or she has had previously.
