  • Aug. 29 Memorial of the Passion of Saint John the Baptist , Memorial
    The Church, having celebrated the earthly birthday of St. John the Baptist on June 24, today honors the anniversary of his martyrdom. Besides our Lord and our Lady, St. John the Baptist is the only one whose birth and death are thus celebrated. Today's Gospel relates the circumstances of his execution. He had the courage to blame Herod to his face for the scandal of his illegal union with his sister-in-law Herodias, whose husband was still alive. Herodias contrived to make Herod imprison him and took advantage of an unexpected opportunity to obtain through her daughter Salome the beheading of the saint.

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.
