Q: How do I become or grow as a Catholic?
A: The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) – a special program established by the Church to help lead people closer to Christ.
How do I know if this program is for me? Ask yourself . . .
Do you, or someone you know, want to become a Catholic?
Have you been worshipping with us, but never officially took the steps to become Catholic?
Have you been away from the church and have now returned, but you want to know more?
Have you been a Catholic all your life, but never celebrated all the sacraments of initiation, including Eucharist and Confirmation?
Have you joined us from a different religious background and would like to find out more about the Catholic Church?
If you answer "YES" to any of the above questions, we want to help you on your journey. Or if you know anyone who could answer "YES" to any of these questions, we would like to invite them. If so, please contact the Parish Office at (718) 338-6265 or send anwith a name, address and phone number.
