Joining the Catholic Church
St. Cecilia Parish in Ashland, MA is happy to help you explore the possibility of becoming Catholic. Some people convert to the Catholic Church from another Christian denomination. Others have no religious background or have lived in a non-christian faith tradition. In any of these cases, we can help you learn more and accompany you on your path to become a Catholic.
St. Cecilia's has an adult faith formation program that teaches newcomers the basics of the Catholic faith. It is part of a process call the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). The RCIA involves a process of education, faith sharing, and rites. Adults who want to join our faith go through this informal and enjoyable program. See our Adult Faith Formation information to learn more and see whom to contact.
If you are an adult seeking Baptism, or you are seeking full sacramental initiation into the Church please come and be a part of our RCIA program. For more information on St. Cecilia's RCIA program, or to talk to our pastor, you can also call St. Cecilia's office at (508)881-1107.
