Do you have questions about joining the Catholic Church? Are you wondering if it is the right step for you? Please come and inquire, there’s no commitment required!

Our program is known as the Ordo of Christian Initiation of Adults. OCIA is a faith process for anyone 18 years or older who is or might be interested in joining the Roman Catholic Church. It is a renewed ritual of an ancient process of becoming a full, active, participating member. We welcome all who are interested in becoming a member of the Catholic Church and invite you to learn as much as you would like.

OCIA is also for those adults who have not yet received Baptism, Confession, Holy Communion, and/or Confirmation.

Questions? We are here to help! Please email Deacon Scott or the parish office for more information or call the office at 301-663-0907.

We adhere to the Archdiocese of Baltimore Policy for the Protection of Children and Youth. All adult volunteers in this ministry need to register on our management compliance website www.virtus.org and read the Archdiocesan Code of Conduct and Statement of Policy, complete online training, have a background screen performed, and provide 3 references. The training and background check must be repeated every 5 years. For more information, click here.
