Becoming Catholic

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults – RCIA

If you or someone you know is interested in taking the steps to become a full member of the Catholic Church or learn more about it, call Deacon Tim Hennessey at 651-905-4301, or Lisa Amos, Pastoral Associate at 651-452-4550 or email her at lamos@stpetersmendota.org.

Because everyone who approaches the Church comes to us from their own unique circumstances and with their own indivual needs and questions, we would like to encourage you to meet with the pastor or pastoral associate for a conversation regarding your own experiences and hopes for living out your faith.

Our process for preparation encourages prayer, participation in community events and ministries, and group and individual learning about Christianity and Catholic teaching.   Those preparing for reception into the Catholic Church, both the baptized and unbaptized, work with our team of volunteers, as well as the pastor and pastoral associate to complete a course of instruction customized for them.
