  • Sep. 21 Twenty-Fifth Sunday of Ordinary Time, Sunday
    "Brothers and sisters: Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. For to me life is Christ, and death is gain. If I go on living in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me. And I do not know which I shall choose. I am caught between the two. I long to depart this life and be with Christ, for that is far better. Yet that I remain in the flesh is more necessary for your benefit (Philippians 1:20c-24)."

Flock Notes

Flock NoteAs our lives become more media minded and the pace of life continues to speed up, it is important to keep "in touch" and to be reminded of our mission as a parish and as a Church. Simple reminders, invitations and alerts received on your computer and smart phones allow me, your Shepherd, to communicate in a quick, simple and effective way.

Flock Notes simply allows our staff to reach you via email and text messages in a nondescript way. If you want to know what is happening on a week to week basis, or you are a minister of the Word or Eucharist or belong to the choir, you may want to be a part of my list. If you are involved in Adult formation or your children participate in parish and regional formation programs, this program is for you. If you belong to any ministry or social group of the parish and want to keep informed of meetings and cancellations, then get on board. If you want to be aware of Church schedules and evening reflection groups, sign up now!!

Signing up is easy. All you have to do is download and fill in this simple registration form. Circle the alerts you are interested in receiving. Return the form in the weekly collection basket or to the church office.

IMPORTANT: ALL INFORMATION WILL BE KEPT CONFIDENTIAL. NO PHONE NUMBERS OR EMAILS WILL BE SHARED WITH ANYONE OUTSIDE THE OFFICE!! YOU DO NOT EVEN NEED TO GIVE YOUR NAME IF YOU DESIRE TO REMAIN ANONYMOUS.

 

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

Have you been worshiping with us, but never officially took the step to become Catholic?

Are you non-baptized and seeking God in your life?

Were you Baptized a Catholic but never received Confirmation and Eucharist?

Have you joined us from another religion and would now like to find out more about the Catholic Church?

Do you know friends or family who might be interested in learning about becoming a Catholic Christian?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the sacramental process by which interested persons gradually become members of the Roman Catholic Church. The RCIA is primarily a journey of faith. RCIA candidates are led into a period of formation and transformation through prayer, instruction and reflection on Sacred Scripture. The church community ritually celebrates and supports the candidates at various points in their journey.

If any of the above questions apply to you, we would like to help you in your journey! During these inquiry gatherings you will have the opportunity to ask questions and become acquainted with the Roman Catholic Church. Please join us for casual evenings to inquire about the Catholic Faith and the RCIA.

If you know of anyone who could answer YES to any of the above questions, consider extending an invitation to accompany them!

When: 7 p.m. every Wednesday from September 3 until October 1, 2014 then 9 a.m. every Sunday beginning October 5, 2014

Where: In the Parish Office building, third floor

There is no registration. You are welcome to come and participate in the process with your questions, your insights or just to hear more about the faith in a warm, accepting setting.

If the evening time does not fit your schedule or for more information please contact Carol Borland at 724-875-8515 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
