St. Patrick offers many opportunities for Faith Formation for children, teens, young adults and for adults as well. All this is aimed at drawing us closer to the heart of Christ.
Are you interested in becoming Catholic? Sacramental Preparation is conducted through our RCIA program. The process for becoming Catholic is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), which is our formation process for adults who:
Have never been baptized
Have been baptized but want to receive the Sacraments of First Reconciliation, First Communion, and Confirmation
Those who have been baptized in another faith and would like to become Roman Catholic
RCIA is the Catholic Church’s process to bring people, through study, spiritual growth and community, into the heart of the Kingdom of Heaven. RCIA is a faith journey designed to meet our fundamental spiritual needs as God’s children and help us identify with and become a part of a faith community. The RCIA program begins each fall and ends at Easter the following spring.
