The Rite of Christian Initiation is a process offered for non-Catholics who are interested in learning more about the Catholic faith or are considering joining our church. This process includes reflection on your journey of faith and sessions on the teachings of our Church. Team members from our parish support those who are "inquiring" about the Catholic faith. If you are interested in becoming Catholic, would like to sponsor someone, or would like to become part of the R.C.I.A. Team, please contact our Pastoral Associate, Jim Crosby, at 513-561-9431, ext. 113. or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org
A team of parishioners help prepare parents for the Baptism of their child.
