Interested in becoming Catholic...

How do I become Catholic?

Your local parish is also the place to begin the process of becoming Catholic.  Each parish will have a program of faith formation, which is commonly called the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).  Contact a parish near you and ask to speak to the pastor or the person who coordinates the RCIA program.  Learn About the RCIA
