Is Jesus Calling You

or Someone You Know

to a Deeper Relationship with Him?

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)


Life has many storms - distressing relationships, job issues, poor health situations - where we feel powerless. If you know someone (unbaptized or baptized in another faith tradition) who is searching for understanding to weather such squalls, invite them to seek the perspective that our Catholic Church offers. With the strength of Faith in our lives, we can weather any storm.


In addition, if you are a Catholic but have not completed the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation) or have questions, take that first step to learn more.


Sandy would love to answer your questions and walk this journey with you.

A great deal of discussion and planning has taken
