I’m Interested In Becoming A Catholic

RCIA - Cross on a Hill

Welcome to Our Lady of Grace Adult Faith Formation. Becoming Catholic is a process called RCIA, Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. We are so honored to walk with you on this faith journey that can lead you to a life of peace, faith, and hope.

 If you have never been baptized and find yourself drawn to the Catholic faith, we extend to you an invitation to explore the possibilities of becoming a member of the Catholic Church. If you have been baptized in another Christian faith tradition, we offer the invitation to join in full communion with the Catholic Church. Or, perhaps you have already been baptized in the Catholic faith but have never received the sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation. Your invitation is to complete your sacraments of initiation. All of these invitations are to a new way of life, a way that draws one closer to God and to his people.

Join us for an Orientation Meeting on Thursday, September 17th at 7:00pm. We will meet via Zoom. Classes will begin in October. All are welcome! Please contact the Parish Office at 510-537-0806 for the Zoom Meeting information.
