How to Become Catholic


RCIA (The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Are you or someone you know interested in exploring the Catholic faith? The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process of initiation into the Catholic Community of Faith. This is for persons who are seeking baptism in the Catholic Church or full communion with the Catholic tradition through the Profession of Faith, reception of Eucharist and Confirmation. It is a process which enables the study of the Gospels, Catholic teaching, Christian values, and the development and deepening of a life of prayer and action with the support and involvement of the parish community. If you are interested, please call Diane Boggs @ 360-823-2828

Who is RCIA for?

  • Non-Catholics who want to find out more about the Catholic Faith
  • Those who want to join the Catholic Church through Baptism, or a Profession of Faith
  • Those who were baptized Catholic as an infant but never received religious education, First Eucharist or Confirmation

Would You Consider Being A Sponsor?

We continue to have many new inquirers coming to participate in our Christian Initiation process to learn more about the Catholic Church (RCIA). We need St. Jospeh parishioners to be companions with our new inquirers to help welcome them to our community. If interested or for more information, please call Diane Boggs at 360-823-2828.
