Becoming Catholic / RCIA

Every week Peter Barbernitz hosts gatherings for new and already-interested Inquirers. These are very informal gathering to look at various aspects of our Catholic faith for those who aren’t ready (and may not ever be ready) to transition into the church. If you are not Catholic but might like to be – give Peter a call! 410 964-1430 or email at

People who have decided to explore becoming Catholic go through a process called RCIA – The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. This process is for those who have never been baptized as well as for some of those baptized into other Christian denominations. We gather regularly throughout the year on Sunday mornings at 10:30 (after the 9:00 mass at WL, before the 12:15 mass at WL). We are usually done at 12:00.

Give Peter a call to talk about this opportunity! 410 964-1430 or email to
