Becoming Catholic

Are you interested in becoming Catholic? Just want to learn more about our faith? Or, are you an adult who is baptized but has not yet received Holy Communion and Confirmation? Contact our RCIA director, Ken McCarthy at 617-549-4620, or Jeanne Cregan, Director of Faith Formation,  at jcregan@holyfamilyduxbury.org   or 781-934-5055 x114  

The RCIA, which stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process through which non-baptized men and women enter the Catholic Church. It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass. Participants in the RCIA are known as catechumens. Adults undergo a process of conversion as they study the Gospel, profess faith in Jesus and the Catholic Church, and receive the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Holy Eucharist. The RCIA process follows the ancient practice of the church and was restored by the Second Vatican Council as the normal way adults prepare for baptism.  You can learn more about the RCIA here.
