OCIA (Order of Christian Initiation for Adults)

Curious about the Catholic faith? Are you and your partner looking to share your Catholic faith? There could be any one of a number of reasons that this is the right time to learn more about the Way to which Jesus calls us. And, St. Elizabeth Ann Seton would love to explore that Way with you. Formerly the RCIA Program, the OCIA—Order of Christian Initiation for Adults—is the place to begin. Please contact Deacon Dave Tiemeier ( He’ll be happy to talk to you or refer you to folks who have participated in and grown through the Program.

One of our former candidates reported, “I felt supported to explore my questions. The sessions were helpful and informative. I really appreciated having this time dedicated to understanding the Word of God, the Catholic Church, and how religion plays a part in my life. I wouldn’t otherwise have had an experience like this. I had casually been exposed to the bible and Church Masses but this was an opportunity I would be happy to help someone else go through.”

And, one of our sponsor reported, “RCIA has been helpful to strengthen my faith and allow my candidate and I to talk more about our faith and future plans as a family.” We’re welcoming new participants, sponsors and team members to help with process. Again, contact Deacon Dave!
