Wondering about becoming Catholic? – New
If you (or someone you know) are wondering about becoming Catholic, we’d love to get to know you! Summer is a great time to prayerfully consider taking this step as it gives everyone enough time to determine next steps, whether that be joining the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) in the fall, or signing up for Adult Confirmation. Wherever you are in your faith journey, we’re ready to accompany our friends who are looking into the Catholic faith. To learn more, contact Sandy at email@example.com or visit saintmichael.ca/cominghome.
