RCIA/C Rite of Christian Initiation-Adult/Child

Welcome to RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Were you never baptized?  Were you baptized in another faith tradtion but are now interested in becoming Catholic?  Were you baptized Catholic but have not received the other sacraments?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are invited to join us in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).

RCIA is a process rather than a program.  Emphasis is on the individual's faith development through the teachings and sacramental life of the Catholic Church. 

The sessions are very informal and include instruction, scripture reflection, and faith sharing. 

We also offer an age-appropriate program for children over the age of seven who have not been baptized.

The RCIA process begins in September.  Reception of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, 1st Eucharist, and Confirmation) occurs at the Easter Vigil.  If you have been baptized in another faith tradition you will not be re-baptized.

Please contact Cathy Wendt at or 414-762-6810 to see if this is the program for you. I am looking forward to talking with you.
