“How Does One Become a Catholic”?

 Many Catholics are born into Catholic families and gradually come to share in the full sacramental life of the Church. Others, who have been previously baptized in a non-Catholic Christian Church, have become Catholics after participating in a formation process that leads to a profession of faith and the celebration of the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist. And some, never baptized, are initiated through a formation process that leads to the celebrations of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. All sacraments are celebrated at the Easter Vigil celebrated by the Catholic community. 

  • The Catholic Church warmly welcomes new members and tries to provide an atmosphere of spiritual formation according to each person’s needs. 
  • The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the Church’s way of initiating new members. 
  • We meet from 7:00 to 8:15 PM in the Parlor. 
  • If interested, or if you have any questions, please contact Joe Rybak at (828) 584-1120.
