Becoming Catholic

The Catechumenate Process

The Church rejoices when one acknowledges the nudgings of the Holy Spirit to consider becoming Catholic!

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process of discerning and ritualizing stages of gradual conversion to the Catholic faith. The process is about a relationship over time with both God and the Catholic community.

The process has no time frame. Conversion occurs on God's time - not our time. Each parish coordinates a process for inquirers depending upon need.  To find a parish nearby or to find out more about the process, please contact us or call 716-847-5516.
