RCIA Class – Becoming Catholic

Interested in learning more about Catholicism…?

The Catholic faith is a treasure to discover and there are many opportunities at Newman learn more about it! In addition to FOCUS bible studies, every week Father Meyer teaches RCIA class. This class is for Catholics and non-Catholics alike, anyone who wants to learn more about the Faith. All those seeking to be baptized or enter full communion with the Catholic Church attend Inquiry class through the year.  Come with your questions or just come to listen. Come to every class or just when you can. You won’t regret it!

There are two tracks of RCIA class.  The class that began in the fall will enter the Church and/or be baptized at Easter and meets every Tuesday from 7:30-9:00 pm during the school year.

There is a 2nd track begining on January 19, 2016, with intended entry into the Church and/or baptism on May 8th
