St. John Berchmans Church is proud to offer a variety of opportunities for growth as persons, as families and as communities of faith and compassion. We invite you to join us since the growth of each person enhances that of the entire community.

RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

Adults interested in becoming a member of the Catholic Church, please contact Rosalinda Rodriguez in the Faith Formation office. The RCIA is a process that invites the baptized and unbaptized, non-Catholic and Catholic adults, who have questions about the Catholic Faith or wish to complete their sacraments of initiation; Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation. The process is individualized as much as possible to meet the needs and life experiences of each adult.
