Inquire into Catholicism

At times an adult without a church family (or never baptized) begins to ask probing questions about life, death, faith and God. This often happens after a lifechanging event such as childbirth or the death of a loved one. We encourage anyone interested in inquiring about the faith of Catholics to contact Fr. Dennis (366-1750) in order to learn about the catechumenate process (RCIA). The same catechumenate process can also be adapted for younger persons, at least 10 years old, who are lacking baptism or first communion.
