Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
(How to become Catholic)

“I have come that you may have life and have it  
       more abundantly.”    “Come, Follow me.”

The community of Saint Rita Catholic Church walks in faith today just as Catholic communities have for thousands of years:

  • Bringing the “Good News” of Jesus Christ: God’s love and His offer of salvation to the whole world,

  • Calling all people to seek a loving and spiritual relationship with Almighty God, through His son, Jesus Christ,

  • Sharing faith through Sacred Scripture, the Sacred Traditions of the Catholic Church & the teachings of the Magisterium (the Pope & the Bishops in communion with him),

  • Worshiping God: Father, Son & Holy Spirit; celebrating the Sacraments as a community of believers and inviting others to join us,

  • Listening & talking to God through private & communal prayer,

  • Striving to imitate Christ by following His two great commandments:
    “Love God ; Love one another.”

  • Using our God-given gifts to serve others by generously sharing our time, talents & treasure.

    The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a journey of discovery, faith and initiation. This Rite leads to reception of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil Mass. Those interested in exploring the Catholic faith should contact

    Father Kevin Johnson, Pastor 267-2558
