Becoming Catholic

Becoming Catholic has been a process of individual conversion guided by the grace of God throughout the centuries. In this process, people naturally have many questions regarding the Faith and teachings of the Catholic Church. RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) assists this process of conversion on a local level in the parish as individuals are taught and guided through classes and rites into the Church at the beautiful Easter Vigil Mass. Anyone interested in discussing the RCIA program or becoming Catholic at St. Bernadette Church should email Norma Thomas at normbt@aol.com or our Director of Religious Education Neil Sloan at RelEd@stbernadetteschurch.org.

In the meantime, there are some great resources for you to review on your own before entering the RCIA process:

www.catholicscomehome.org offers some great resources on Catholic teachings.

www.beginningcatholic.com is another great resource for teachings of the Catholic Church.
