Becoming Catholic (RCIA)


Would you like to learn more about Catholicism or join the Catholic Church? Inquiry meetings for anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic faith or joining the Catholic Church are ongoing. This process is called RCIA, the Rite of Catholic Initiation of Adults. I look forward to visiting with you. 

For information, please contact Deacon Tim Sullivan, Director of RCIA at [email protected] or by phone at 918-528-6150.


Meetings will be held on Wednesdays from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Room G-8 at St. Bernard's.
