TESTIMONIES FROM NEOPHYTES
The RCIA process is much more than preparation for Baptism. The goal of the process is Full Communion and full, conscious and active participation in the Eucharist and in the whole life of the Catholic faith community. RCIA helps individuals to grow in relationship with God, to become familiar with Catholic teachings and practices, to get acquainted with others in the parish community and to become involved in service within the community.
Neophyte means “newly planted” and is the term used to describe our newest Catholics. Each has their own story, their own journey to Christ and His Church. Following are the stories of a few of our parishioners who went through the RCIA process.
