Becoming Catholic: All are welcome and invited to join the Catholic Church! 2022-2023 Session will begin with an open house on Wednesday, August 24, 2022 at 6:30pm in the Church Office. At St. John the Baptist, the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a program that helps welcome and educate new members of the Catholic Church. Join us on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 pm, beginning after the open house in the Church Office to inquire about the Catholic faith. The RCIA invites new members into the community and recognizes that faith and conversion are a gradual process. Call the Church Office (225-749-2189) for more information, or to schedule a parish visit! We would love to have you as a part of St. John the Baptist Catholic Faith Community!
