How to Become Catholic

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults - Wikipedia

The young adult years are an important time to make personal decisions for one’s life, including decisions regarding faith beliefs. At Dickinson Catholic Campus Ministry, we hope to provide opportunities within our group and through Saint Patrick’s to make the decision to join the Catholic Church through the sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation. Before joining the Catholic Church through these sacraments, you will likely need to complete the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) program. Whether you have completed some of these sacraments or none, we have provided a list of contacts below to assist on the journey to full initiation in the Catholic Church:
