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.
