I Want to Become Catholic

These UMD students made the leap and became Catholic.

Would You Like to Find Out About Becoming Catholic?

Do you have questions about what it means to be Catholic? Maybe you have been a Christian in another Christian tradition. Maybe you have no formal Christian background. Perhaps you were baptized as a baby in the Catholic Church or in another Christian denomination but that is the extent of your Christian formation.

We would like to invite you to participate in our RCIA/Catholicism 101 class that will begin on November 8. RCIA classes will be held on Tuesday nights from 7:00pm – 8:30pm at the Newman House. For more information, please email or call Father Mike Schmitz at (218) 728-3757.
