Are you interested in learning about the Catholic faith? Are you looking into joining the Church? Are you a Catholic who has been away for a while? Did you miss Confirmation? Then the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is for you. It begins with a cook-out on August 19th, at 6:30 p.m. on the back patio of Father’s house (to the right of the Church when facing it from 3rd street). Bring friends if you wish. RCIA sessions will be held each Wednesday starting at 7:00 p.m. Attending the classes does not obligate you to entering the Church at Easter.
We look forward to seeing you in August.

AN INVITATION FROM ST. JOSEPH CATHEDRAL
In commemoration of The Year of the Priest, as has been proclaimed by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, Saint John Vianney, Universal Patron of Priests, will be honored Saturday, August 1st, through his feast day, Tuesday, August 4th, at St. Joseph Cathedral. All members of our Diocese are welcome to join us in this beautiful celebration after every mass when the Holy Relic of the beloved Saint will be exposed on the altar of the Terce Chapel for veneration and private prayer.
Dear Lord, we pray that the Blessed Mother wrap her mantle around her priests and through her intercession strengthen them for their ministry. We pray that Mary will guide your priests to follow her own words, “Do whatever he tells you” (John 2:5). May your priests have the heart of St. Joseph, Mary’s most chaste spouse. May the Blessed Mother’s own pierced heart inspire them to embrace all who suffer at the foot of the cross. May your priests be holy, filled with the fire of your love seeking nothing but your greater glory and the salvation of souls. Amen.
