How can I become Catholic?
RCIA/C (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults/Children) is the preparation program for a person to become a Catholic; please contact Kathy Freer in the Faith Formation Office for more information, 248-651-2443.
Do you want to become Catholic
RCIA for Children is for children not baptized as infants and for children who were baptized in a different Christian community who would like to receive the sacraments of First Communion or First Reconciliation.
The order of Christian initiation for Children is a wonderful gift to the parish. Children have a way of ministering to their families and to the community. Welcoming children into the community of faith and forming them in its life continues to raise new, good questions for each generation of Christians.
If you have any questions about RCIA for Children please contact, Kathy Freer at (248) 651-2443 Ext. 117
