RCIA provides meaningful encounters with the Risen Christ, so that those considering the Catholic Faith may be transformed by His transforming love.

RCIA 2022-23 Schedule

Are You Interested in the Catholic Faith?

Wednesdays 6 – 8 PM

Our Lady of the Assumption offers those who wish to begin a new journey in faith to share the richness of the Catholic Church and our parish family.  We invite you to learn what the Church teaches, and to be introduced to some of our parish members.

These sessions also are opportunities for you, and others that you may wish to invite, to ask those perplexing and difficult questions you may have about the Church.

These gatherings are for inquirers and are open to people who are unbaptized, as well as those who are baptized Christians from Protestant or Evangelical backgrounds.  New sessions begin each September in the New Church at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish 2602 S. Walnut Rd. Turlock, CA 95380.  Feel free to come any Wednesday. Please give us a call if you have questions and would like further information at 209.634.2222.

Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope, but do it with gentleness and reverence, keeping your conscience clear. – 1Peter 3:15

Our Lady of the Assumption RCIA program meets on Wednesdays for Mass at 6pm, and then as a small-group from 6:45-8pm.
