Adults becoming Catholic
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) welcomes and initiates those who choose to become Catholic by providing Catholic Christian formation.
Baptism of Infants
There are several steps in this process that can last from one to three years depending on the readiness of each individual. We meet for classes on Sunday mornings from 9:30 AM to 12 noon from August to May. We will have Holidays and Christmas Break.
We will also take two retreats - one before Lent and another before receiving your sacraments at Easter Vigil.
To get started, call Rebecca Soto by calling the Parish Office 714-826-0760 or email@example.com.
Children up to six years old are baptized under the condition that parents promise to raise the child in the Catholic faith as a Christian.
