Becoming a Catholic - For those who seek to become a member of the Catholic Church Community, there is a program that helps guide them on their faith journey called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.). They will meet weekly on Sunday at 11 am beginning in mid-September, inquiring about their desire to become a Catholic and also to start learning about the Church. The formal educational and discerning process culminates with the Easter Vigil Liturgy when they are received into the Church. If you are interested or would like to learn more, please call Deacon Timothy Enright 302-378-5800 or 301-785-4330.
