What's stopping you from becoming Catholic?

Do you or someone you know have questions about the Catholic faith?  Would you like to be able to go to a class where you could get your questions answers and maybe learn some other things you did not know about Catholics?  Well you're in luck?  A new RCIA class is forming at a parish near you!  RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.  It was originally created to help those who were unbaptized adults who wanted to convert to Catholicism, understand the basic tenants of the Catholic faith so that they can be sure that they fully understand and believe in the doctrines and dogmas of the church they are wanting to join.  After all, there are over 2000 years of church teachings and traditions to filter through.  RCIA classes are now also for those adults who have been previously baptized in another Christian faith tradition or denomination.  But you might say, well I'm not sure if I'm ready to join the Catholic Church, but I do have questions about the Catholic faith.  Then RCIA is for you!  What better place to come and get your questions answered than from others who have at one time or another had the very same questions you do.  So if you are ready to take the next step, contact someone you know who is Catholic and ask them about going to RCIA classes, or send me an e-mail at and I will help you find one in your area, or if you are in St. Louis, Missouri, you can attend the one at my parish.
