Becoming Christian

RCIA

For Christians, initiation means falling in love with Jesus and living as His disciples. Through the process of becoming Catholic we try to help people learn how to respond to God’s call for their everyday lives.

The way we learn to do this is by hanging out with Catholics and actually doing what Catholics do. The process of becoming Catholic is about entering into a way of life as an apprentice learns from a Master and that Master’s community.

Jesus is our Master and becoming Catholic is a lot like being His apprentices. The process for this apprenticeship into the Christian way of life is called the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (often called RCIA). It involves encountering the Word of God in the Christian community, worship and prayer and serving others.

If you are interested in becoming Catholic and responding to God, call or contact Brian Hanson at (602) 867-9171 ext. 311 or bhanson@stjoanofarc.com.
