Welcome!
We are so thrilled you’re considering deepening your faith in Jesus through the Roman Catholic tradition.

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) process is  for adults who wish to be baptized in the Catholic Church or who have already been baptized in another Christian tradition and who want to become Catholic, or those who have been baptized Catholic but have not celebrated First Communion or Confirmation.

RCIA curriculum consists of an introduction to the stories, rituals, and symbols of the Catholic community. The process invites those preparing for baptism or reception into the church to enter deeper into their faith journey.

The Newman community celebrates adult baptisms and reception into the Church (adult first Communion and Confirmation) at Easter.
