Becoming Catholic

rcia 2017 landing page image.jpg

No matter what your present status in the Catholic Church, no matter your personal history, age, income, background, gender, race, ethnicity, spirituality, or marital situation ~ you are invited, accepted, and respected here at St. Bridget.
Each year on Holy Saturday during the Easter Vigil, thousands are baptized into the Catholic Church around the world.  Parishes welcome these New Catholics through RCIA ~ the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.  

WHO:  Adults & teens who:

  • Have not been baptized

  • Have been baptized in another faith tradition

  • Have been baptized Catholic but have not received First Eucharist or Confirmation

  • Catholics & Non-Catholics looking to learn more about the Catholic faith

WHAT:  The RCIA program offers you the opportunity to take a deeper look into the Catholic faith.  It is a great way to meet and have fellowship with others in our church family in an open and welcoming environment.  It also gives you the opportunity to ask those perplexing and difficult questions you may have about the Catholic Church.  

WHEN:  Gatherings for candidates will be determined.

WHERE:  St. Bridget’s Spirituality Center
