Become Catholic

Overview

The OCIA (Order of Christian Initiation of Adults) is a casual and conversational environment where people who are exploring the Catholic Faith get to know more about the basic message and the person of Jesus Christ and the mission of his Church through our local Church of Saint Helen!

OCIA is a welcoming way to take a look at the bigger picture about God, Jesus, the Bible, the Christian Story and the Catholic Church, culminating in the reception of the Sacraments at Eastertime.

Since receiving the Sacraments in the Church is process, there is a “built-in” time of discernment that a person is encouraged to walk through.

Joining OCIA

If you’re 18 years old and up and are new to Christianity or the Catholic Church or haven’t been baptized or received the Sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Communion – then OCIA is for you.
