Adult Formation

On-going faith formation is essential if we want to live as a disciple of Jesus. Programs, speakers, workshops and activities take place throughout the year.

Know Jesus. Make Him known.

Infant Baptism Preparation

Children are baptized under the condition that parents promise to raise the child as a Catholic Christian. Classes are held about once a month for parents and godparents in preparation for this wonderful sacrament.


There are several steps for Infant Baptism, so it is important to get started at least two months before the desired baptism date.

Step 1: Pick up a baptism registration packet from the parish office or download the pdf here

Step 2: Read the letter and Baptism Information

Step 3: Submit the registration items to the parish office

Step 4: Once everything has been received, you will be contacted by email to schedule the Baptism Prep class and the Baptism ceremony date


Infant Baptism is for children who have not yet reached their seventh birthday. Please visit our Youth Ministry page for baptism of children age seven to 12th grade. For adult baptism, please call the parish office or send an email.



"I have baptized you with water; he will baptize you with the holy Spirit."

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults/RCIA

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) welcomes and initiates those who choose to become Catholic by providing Catholic Christian formation.


RCIA is for adults who have never been baptized as a Christian, adults who have been baptized in another Christian faith and now want to be Catholic, and adults who have been baptized Catholic but never received the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.


There are several steps in RCIA as participants "undergo a process of conversion as they study the Gospel, profess faith in Jesus and the Catholic Church, and receive the sacraments... " (USCCB).



To get started call 714-826-0760 or send an email.
