Are you interested in finding out more about how to become a Catholic? Maybe you have been away from the Church for a little while or for quite some time, but now you feel a tug at your heart calling you back to the Catholic Church. Perhaps you're already a practicing Catholic but don't feel you were taught much about your faith after you left school.
If any of that sounds like you, then the RCIA is the place to begin your journey to enlightenment and freedom.
