For adults who seek to become Catholic, RCIA provides a gradual progress into understanding Catholic belief, a gentle growing involvement in this community, and friendship with other believers. Emphasis is placed on personal decision and spiritual growth.
The R.C.I.A. team includes parishioners who accompany candidates on their spiritual journey. Baptisms are celebrated at Saint Joseph's Church every year at Easter Vigil and Adult Confirmations are either at St joseph's Church on Easter Vigil (or sometimes at Notre Dame Cathedral on Pentecost Vigil). Meetings are held every Thursday at 8pm at St Joseph's Church.
