To become Catholic you must go through a process called The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or 'RCIA'. RCIA is a communal process of spiritual and educational formation for adults who seek to become full members of the Roman Catholic Church through a conversion of mind and heart.
The process is open to all persons, regardless of religious background or philosophical persuasion, who genuinely seek, by God’s grace, to live their lives in the distinctive Catholic Christian faith.
We are always here to answer any questions you may have regarding the Catholic faith. Please feel free to email Beth Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org any time.
Testimonies from our parishioners on why they became Catholic...
My fiance was Catholic. I was raised Baptist, but I really wasn't anything. When I realized I was wrong, about everything, I began asking and researching about Our Holy Mother. I truly believe she took me by the hand and brought me into the Church. It was as though I could hear her sayings "Come meet my Son." When I came to the Church I knew I was where I was suppose to be. I found people who welcomed me and became family. Saint Clare was praying for me and I was very inspired by her life. I had made heavenly friends and did not even realize it. So yes, it just made sense and I began to believe. As Saint Augustine said "because I believe I understand." Anna
My father was brought up Catholic but married outside the church for personal reasons. I was raised Methodist and my family was very active in the church.
My wife of 39 years came from a Catholic family and we have brought our children up Catholic. Although I have always attended mass with my family, I never felt a part of the actual Catholic faith. God led us to Our Saviour Church and consequently, my wife was able to receive an annulment and I was able to become a Catholic through the RCIA process.
This was an answer to prayer for all of us. There is no better family than this one. Thank you to everyone for making this possible.
My mother was Catholic but was treated roughly at the church so she left and went to the Lutheran Church. It was a long road back to the Catholic Church for me. My mother's experiences coupled with my own impressions made it difficult for me to trust the Catholic Church. It was truly amazing that the Bishop of Brooklyn NY presided at our Reception into the Church since my husband is from NYC.
