The process for becoming Catholic is called the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). Throughout the time of preparation you will learn the basics of what the Catholic Church teaches and believes about God and God’s relationship with humanity. Topics covered: God as Three persons in One God (Holy Trinity), Sacraments, the Bible, Morality, Prayer, Saints, Mass and some history of the Church.

Baptisms and Confirmation

We celebrated one Baptism and four Confirmations this year with Bishop Olson! Congratulations to all of our newly Baptized and Confirmed brothers and sisters in Christ! :)

Baptismal and Confirmation Masses are on Wednesdays near the end of the semester at 6:00 PM. There is no Adoration or Confession during these days. The Mass will be celebrated by Bishop Olson of the Diocese of Fort Worth at the University Catholic Community.
