Interested In Becoming 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, and you have questions about the Catholic faith.

We would like to invite you to participate in our RCIA/Catholicism 101 class that will be held on campus on Tuesday nights at 7:00pm beginning November 7, 2023. For more information, please email Lauren at lauren.hopke@bulldogcatholic.org.
