Interested in becoming Catholic? Want to learn more about the Faith?

We want to invite you, as someone who might be searching for answers and a place to open your heart and mind to God, to consider joining us in our exploration of the Catholic Faith. Our parish's Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) could be your answer. RCIA (or for children, RCIC) is a process that begins in September and lasts through Pentecost Sunday. Anyone who is interested can learn more about the Catholic Religion with a view toward the possibility of becoming a full participant in it.  This initiation into the church is a process of discernment, not a one-time act, and is facilitated by a team of RCIA ministers from the parish.  To learn more information about RCIA/RCIC and/or to inquire about becoming Catholic, please contact Sr. Maxine.

The initiation into the church through RCIA is divided into four significant phases:


2017-2018 RCIA Schedule

Candidates and sponsors meet weekly on Thursday at 7:00 PM in the Parish Activity Center (PAC Room) from September 14, 2017, through Pentecost Sunday, May 20, 2018.

Volunteering as a Sponsor
We select sponsors from a pool of parish volunteers and match them to our candidates/catechumen for what we hope will be the best fit for spiritual development. Sponsors must be practicing Catholics. RCIA/RCIC begins in mid-September and ends on Pentecost Sunday. Commitment to serving as a sponsor involves a significant number of hours. However, the depth of your growth and faith development, the involvement in your parish community, and the joy it genuinely brings others is priceless. If you are interested in applying for sponsorship, please contact Sr. Maxine Shonk at 614-751-8815 or by email to

St. Pius X Vocation Prayer

In every age Lord, you raise up women and men who are strong in their faith and bold in their actions to give witness to the Gospel.

Fill St. Pius with Your Spirit and give us a burning desire to make a difference in our world because of our love for You.

Bless our Church with holy and courageous priests, deacons, religious sisters and brothers, devoted married couples, dedicated single men and women and enthusiastic youth.

We ask in Jesus' name.
