Christian Initiation of Adults

What is the Christian Initiation of Adults program?

The Christian Initiation of Adults is a process for adults seeking to become full members of the Catholic Church. Participants not only find out about the Catholic Church, but God’s love for us and our relationship with others.

What is its purpose?

To inform you about the teachings and practices of the Roman Catholic faith and is the primary way people become members of the Catholic Church.

To nourish and enrich your Christian life, and introduce you to our Church community in order to have fellowship and support.

What are my obligations?

You do not have to become a Roman Catholic, however the classes are designed to give you that opportunity.

Regularly attend sessions and celebrate mass with us on Sunday mornings beginning in September each year.

“At the heart of (adult) catechesis we find…the person of Jesus of Nazareth, and it is for this reason that the definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ.”

– Blessed John Paul II
