Becoming Catholic is a journey that includes instruction, spiritual formation, and introduction to community life. The Church has a formal process for those who want to become Catholic called RCIA, or the Rite of Christian Initiation.  The formation process prepares people to become Catholic and receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist).  

 We are called to be one in Jesus Christ. The Sacraments of Initiation incorporate us into the Church and Christ’s life and form us into a holy community.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

St. Louis RCIA formation sessons begins in September and continues through May. There are two components to the RCIA. First, we meet on Tuesday nights at 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Activity Center for formation sessions. These sessions provide an in-depth exploration of the Catholic faith for the unbaptized. Second, on Sundays, we sit together at the 9:30 a.m. Mass and dismiss after the homily to Break Open the Word. We dismiss by 11:00 a.m. on Sundays.

This session of RCIA is currently underway. A new RCIA group will begin in September 2019.
