Becoming Catholic

Individuals or families who would like to explore becoming part of our Catholic community are welcome to contact our office at 304-748-6710 to talk to our Pastor.

The process of becoming a Christian for those who are not baptized is called the “Rite of Christian Initiation”  or RCIA.  The preparation process involves an initial meeting with of our pastor and then a series of gatherings with a team of our members who will share the beliefs, customs and worship of our church.  This process is geared to the needs of each individual given their experience, religious background and age.

Normally, the initiation of new members is celebrated each year at the Great Easter Vigil with Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.


Those who have already been baptized in another Christian tradition are also welcome to join our community but follow a different path of welcome.
