If you are a person who has never been baptized, or was baptized in another religion, and have the desire to become Catholic, please consider joining our RCIA classes. Also if you are a Baptized Catholic adult who has not made your First Holy Communion or have not been Confirmed, you can also be involved in RCIA.
