Interested in Becoming a Catholic?
If you or someone you know is feeling called to join the Catholic Church, to receive the Sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist and/or Confirmation, or simply to grow in your understanding of the faith, our parish invites you to participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).
This process involves regular meetings over the next eight months, culminating at the Easter Vigil next April. Through this process the Church welcomes converts into our community and provides baptized Catholics an opportunity to return to more active participation in the Church or to learn more about the Catholic faith.
You can read more about the RCIA process at the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops' website.
The new RCIA group at St. Luke is forming now, so to find out more information about this process at our parish, please contact Deacon Bob Slobig at 771-6430 or by email at email@example.com.
Some comments from those who have completed the RCIA program in the past:
"It's absolutely wonderful to be able to receive these sacraments."
"Catholicism has changed my life in providing a different view and perspective on my everyday living."
"Being a mother and a wife gives me a greater purpose to lead a life filled with kindness, patience, honesty, responsibility and love.These character traits are hard to maintain by oneself, so I now look to my God and to my parish to help me lead the life that I was born to live."
"The richness and fullness of the Catholic Church isn't found anywhere else. Looking back, I see how much was missing. I'm not even 100 percent Catholic yet, but I can't imagine my life without the holy Sacraments, without praying the holy rosary, without confessions and without the holy Eucharist."
"During my daughter's baptism, my body was overcome by so much joy and fulfillment that it is very hard to put into words. I realized then that though I had started the process for her, I also wanted the same baptism for me. The different rites of the RCIA helped me realize that I was really meant to be part of the RCIA process and become one with God and the Catholic community."
