Adult Faith Education and RCIA


“The RCIA program helped me not only get closer to God but closer to my family through God. I would recommend this program to anyone wanting to be part of the Catholic Church.”  ~A past participant

Are you or anyone you know interested in exploring the Catholic faith?

RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, the process by which adults desiring to join the Catholic Church participate in a program of study and formation leading to their initiation into our faith community.

The RCIA is a program of faith formation and education for non-Catholics interested in learning more about or joining the Catholic Church, for Catholic adults who have not yet been confirmed, and for any Catholics interested in learning more about our Catholic faith.

Those interested in participating as members of the RCIA program are asked to contact the parish office at 507-645-8816. Join us on this Journey of Faith.
