Welcome! We are happy you are inquiring about joining the Catholic Church at Good Shepherd Parish. We offer a process called RCIA. Below is some information about RCIA, if you have additional questions, please feel free to contact Deacon Paul Martin at 636-797-2109

What is R.C.I.A. (or simply “RCIA”)?

RCIA stands for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, it is a faith journey, by which an adult person is initiated into the Catholic Church through Baptism, Confirmation, and First Holy Communion. With the local parish community serving as both teachers and models, the adult is formed in the Christian faith, the rich tradition of the Catholic Church and develops a deeper relationship with Jesus.

Who can join RCIA?

Adults or older children who have not been baptized and desire to join the Church are invited to participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. During this process, participants will be introduced to the liturgy, the teachings, and the life of the Catholic Church.

Adults or older children who were baptized Catholic or in another Christian denomination may also join and prepare for the sacraments of Confirmation and the Eucharist to complete their reception into the Catholic Church.

How does the RCIA process work?

People making the RCIA journey will attend class sessions. The RCIA team members will share their faith with you as you learn more about the Catholic Church. This team of fellow Christians will help support, instruct, and guide you on your journey to become part of the Catholic community at Good Shepherd.

What do I do if I want to join the RCIA? 

Contact Deacon Paul Martin or the Parish Office.  Deacon Paul will set up an interview, take down some information, introduce you to the team and you are on your way!  We sincerely hope you join us.  Each person who comes to RCIA enhances the faith of all the team.  We hope to hear from you soon!
