RCIA – 2009 – 2010

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.



Every Sunday dedicated volunteers work Bingo.  The monies raised from bingo help support our school and parish.  This past year, Bingo made $76,759.85.  This is a 75% increase from the year before!  This is by far our largest fundraiser of the year.  However, we are in need of more dedicated volunteers to keep bingo running.  The crowds are growing, but our volunteers are not.  We are in need of people to volunteer once a month on a regular basis.  There is no smoking in the gymnasium.  Come and get involved, meet new people, and help support your parish through your gift of time.  To get involved please call the parish office at 445-9668
