Becoming Catholic (RCIA)

Is God calling you to become a member of the Catholic Church?  Are you a non-Catholic who is interested in learning more about the Catholic faith?  We invite you to journey with us in a program of adult faith formation called the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).

Every year at the Easter Vigil, thousands of adults all over the world answer God’s call and are brought home to the Catholic Church through the Sacraments of Initiation.  If you, or someone you know, is interested in exploring the possibility of becoming Catholic, the RCIA is the place for you!

For more information, or to sign up for class, please contact Saint Rose at or by calling the parish office (419-874-4559).

If you would like to share your faith with another and renew your own as a Sponsor for RCIA, please contact the parish office as well.
