Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
The term RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. RCIA consists of a series of stages of preparation, as well as rites (rituals). The RCIA originated in the earliest traditions of the Church for welcoming new members into the Catholic community. It is for those who have never been baptized, baptized in another Christian faith and are interested in becoming a Catholic.  RCIA is for people of all walks of life: people raised in other faiths; people who were baptized Catholic but were not raised Catholic; people with no religious background at all. The RCIA is designed to meet you where you are, and to walk with you on your journey of faith. We also welcome those adults who wish to make their Confirmation.  Classes are held on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm.  For more information please contact Director of Religious Education, Ernest Johnson, Jr  (337) 235-6323. 



Teen Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA)
​The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adult (R.C.I.A.) for Teens is the process by which our youth become Catholic. The team provides education, hospitality, and support as they welcome members to the Catholic faith and church community. Applications for R.C.I.A for Teens are made through the Director of Religious Education, Ernest Johnson, Jr (337) 235-6323.
