Become Catholic!

Are You Looking For Information On Becoming Catholic?

Perhaps you, your spouse, a family member, or a friend are feeling called by God to become a member of His beloved Church. The ancient initiation process of the Catholic (aka “universal”) Church is called the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA).

This process is for anyone who wants to become a member of the Church through the sacraments and also for those individuals who need to complete their Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist). The process is available for children, teens, and adults.

This ancient rite will form you in the ways of Christ and the Church and teach you how to develop an intimate relationship with our loving God through prayer, the sacraments, and especially the Eucharist.

To learn more about RCIA and how to become a fully initiated member of our Catholic family, please contact Anthony Fortunato at afortunato@stmarylittleton.org or at 720-283-4726.

All are welcome to contact him to inquire about the process or to ask questions about the faith!

RCIA Sponsors and Catechists

Are you interested in serving as a catechist or as someone’s sponsor in the RCIA process?

An important aspect of the RCIA process is the ministry of the “sponsor”. The individuals who are preparing for full initiation into the Catholic faith require a sponsor from the community to accompany them through the process and to attend classes with them. For the sponsors, this is an amazing opportunity to learn more about your faith and to personally witness the life-changing power of the Holy Spirit in our lives.

If you wish to serve as a catechist in the RCIA process we will help form you on a deeper level and equip you to assist us in teaching the faith in a manner that you are comfortable with.

If you have served in the RCIA catechist or sponsor ministries in the past or are interested in doing so this coming year please contact Anthony at afortunato@stmarylittleton.org or at 720-283-4726.

RCIA for Children

RCIA for Children is a family faith formation program which concludes with the reception of the Sacraments of Initiation including Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil Mass, and followed by the completion of First Reconciliation at a later date. Children ages 7 – 11 are supported by their peers, catechists, parents and parish staff as they grow and learn about the Catholic faith and sacramental life. This program includes several important rites celebrated at Mass to support young inquirers and their families to delve deeper into their exploration of the Catholic faith and to welcome them as they make the personal decision to become fully initiated members of the Catholic Church. Please contact Richard Hamilton, Children’s Ministries Coordinator, at rhamilton@stmarylittleton.org or 720.283.4729.
