I have never been Baptized. How do I become a Christian? (RCIA)
Whenever people were curious about the way Jesus lived, his response was an invitation to follow him; to “come and see” (Jn. 1:38-19, Mt. 4:19, Mt. 16:24, Lk. 9:23). For those who are curious about what it means to be and live as a Christian, our response is similar – come and see how we live, worship, pray, learn, and serve!
For Christians, initiation means falling in love with Jesus and choosing to live as his disciples. Preparing to become a Christian is NOT just about learning what the Church teaches and why in a classroom. It is a training in the Christian way of life. This training happens by spending time with other Christians and actually doing what Christians do. This process of apprenticeship is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (also called the RCIA).
The process begins with a short series of inquiry meetings to get to know you and determine how best to meet you where you are and help you to become a disciple of Jesus Christ. This is a year-round process that can begin anytime! Simply contact Deacon Richard Moser to schedule your first Inquiry Meeting.
