Interested in becoming Catholic? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is for adults and older teenagers who are interested in becoming members of the Catholic Church. RCIA meets weekly from September through Easter. During this period of time candidates learn about Jesus Christ and his invitation to be a disciple through membership and participation in the life of His Church. A time of discernment, commitment and membership are built into the program. To learn more, contact Fr. Mike Esswein, 314-962-5955, x133 or RCIA director, Patrick Stack, 314-966-1022.
