I Want to Become Catholic

by Karl Watkins

What is the Catholic Church all about?

The TU Newman Center’s RCIA class is a great place to find out. Whether you want to become Catholic, get confirmed, or just want to learn more about us, there’s no better place to be! RCIA is a yearlong introduction to the foundations of Catholic beliefs and practices. It is also a chance for us to learn and grow together in our faith. RCIA classes meet weekly, based on the group scheduling.We believe that the Church is a family, and that family grows every year with RCIA. Please contact Gerald Murphy at (918) 599-0204 or tu-newman@utulsa.edu for more information.

Baptism: Renewal by the Spirit

Some people are baptized as babies, but many are not. If you have not been baptized and are interested in receiving the sacrament, let us know! We are eager to help you share in God’s love through the Sacraments of the Church!

Becoming Catholic

Whether you were never baptized, or baptized and raised in another faith, it is part of our mission from Christ to share the full truth and beauty of the Catholic Church with the whole world. The process of preparing to enter the Church is called the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). RCIA involves spending time meditating and praying with the Bible and studying the Catechism of the Catholic Church to discover the fullness of God’s plan for mankind’s salvation. Interested? Awesome! We’d love to share more. Talk to Father Ketterer or catch a peer minister after Mass or around campus.

Confirmation: Sealed with the Spirit

The Sacrament of Confirmation is conferred upon baptized Catholics who wish to deepen their commitment to Christ. Confirmation celebrates the gifts of the Holy Sprit and helps us commit our lives to the Church. Newman provides Confirmation classes on a regular basis. Contact our office, see Father Ketterer, or talk with a peer minister if you are interested in becoming Confirmed or just learning more.
