The Rite of Christian Initiation is an entrance process into the Catholic way of life. An Inquiry period is held every fall for anyone curious about the Catholic faith or anyone interested in joining the church. After this period of basic introduction, participants who wish to join the faith, start their formation by meeting with community members weekly. They attend Sunday Mass, study the scriptures, the teachings, and the traditions of the Catholic Church. Participants are led and supported in prayer and introduced to the church community life. Individuals, who discern their readiness, prepare for the Easter sacraments and join at the Easter Vigil. This journey is designed to lovingly support those who are seeking to know, understand, and live the Catholic faith.
