Joining the Catholic Faith (RCIA)

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA)

Are you interested in the Catholic Faith?

St. James the Apostle offers a year around journey in faith to share the richness of the Catholic Church and our parish family through summer family activities, Inquiry opportunities, witness testimonies, Catholic Content, and Breaking open the Sunday Gospels.  

We invite you to come and hear what our faith offers and meet some faithful Catholics who love the Lord and would consider it a privilege to get to know you.  These sessions are opportunities for you, and others that you may wish to invite, to ask those perplexing and difficult questions you may have about the Church. 

Adult parishioners who have been confirmed and are active in the parish are invited to sponsor those who are seeking full initiation in the Catholic Faith.

The “first step” is to contact Barbara Nichols, RCIA Coordinator, 770-957-5441 ext. 103 or
