RCIA is for those:

  • Who wish to explore the teaching of the Catholic Church with the desire to become Catholic.
  • Are either baptized or unbaptized, but are not Catholic.
  • Are 19 years and older.

RCIA is a journey of faith:

  • It is the process by which men and women enter the Catholic Church.
  • It is a journey in that you are paired with a Catholic sponsor to help guide you along the way.
  • You will join other candidates and sponsors in the form of weekly classes that begin in September, culminating with the entry into the Catholic Church the night before Easter.

RCIA is about Sacrament:

Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Communion) are typically celebrated at the Easter Vigil Mass.  At this time, those participating in RCIA become full members of the Catholic Church.  If you would like more information on joining the Catholic Church through RCIA, or to register for RCIA, please contact Kate Casale at (402) 721-6611 ext. 18 or  [email protected].  To inquire about RCIC, Christian Initiation of Children, please contact Lori Kisby at (402) 721-6611 ext. 15 or [email protected].  

RCIA Sponsors needed:

Catholics who are confirmed and over 18 years old who would like to share in this spiritual journey – we need you!  Many sponsors have been surprised at what they learned about their faith. Qualifications are not determined by your head knowledge but rather your willingness of heart!  If interested in becoming a sponsor, contact Kate Casale.
