How does a person become Catholic?

We are happy that you are interested in finding out more about our faith and we pray that God in his love will bring you into His Church to share in His Life.

A great number of the members of the Catholic Church are baptized as infants.  They are nurtured in the tradition, growing up in Catholic homes, receiving  religious education and sharing in the sacramental life of the Church.

For others who are baptized in another Christian tradition, there is an initiation process to prepare them to enter into full communion with the Catholic Church through the celebration of the sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist.

Others who are not baptized journey through a process during which they learn about the teachings and values of the Catholic Church.  At the same time, they are introduced into the prayer life and practices of the Church.  In this process, the goal is to grow in awareness of God, turn one's life to Him and build a relationship with Him.  If in the course of this process, they discern God's calling to share his blessed life and wish to become Catholics, they do so through the celebration of Baptism generally during the Easter Vigil.  They will also receive the sacrament of Confirmation and be admitted to Holy Communion for the first time.

What is this process that is being referred to and what is asked of me in this process?

The process is called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and it enables those considering membership in the Catholic Church to know about our beliefs and how we live our lives, gain spiritual formation and direction. 

The beautiful thing about the RCIA is that the entire parish journeys with you by welcoming you, offering you support, encouragement and prayers.  A team of catechists and support people is assigned to guide you in the formation process.

The Catholic Church asks that you attend the RCIA weekly sessions and the other RCIA events and rites that will be celebrated to mark the various stages of your discernment.  We also ask that you come with an open heart and mind to receive God's calling and understand our faith and way of life.

How long is the RCIA process?

The process usually takes a year.  Do not be perturbed by the chronological timeline.  You do not want to rush through your faith journey.  Formation, discernment and conversion to God need time.  You will appreciate this time as you grow in awareness of His love for you, savouring your discovery of his goodness.

I am engaged to a Catholic.  Is it possible for me to become a Catholic in time for my marriage?

The goal is not to work in such a way that your becoming a Catholic ante-dates your wedding date.  Becoming a Catholic is a faith response to God's call which requires time for reflection, prayer and discernment.  It should not come from the pressure of an imminent wedding.  It may be helpful to wait until after marriage to begin your inquiry into the Catholic faith so that you are sure your inquiry arises from personal conviction.

Is it true that I need a sponsor?

You do not journey alone in this process.  Your journey is meaningful especially when a member of the parish community - a sponsor - accompanies you.  This spiritual companion will support you, share his or her faith with you, answer your queries and share in all the sessions and celebrations of the rites.

Am I compelled to become a Catholic at the end of the RCIA process?

No one is ever forced to become a Catholic.  God in his graciousness wants you to come to him on your own free will and when you feel you are ready.  We are open to resolve whatever doubts that you may have and we also respect your personal decision not to go forward for Baptism.
