Have you read the book?
Join us as we share our thoughts and insights about the first few chapters of Rediscover Jesus. Deacon Mike and Barb Lane will facilitate our next gathering on Sunday, August 19th after the 10:30am Mass. We will meet in room 105 for about an hour and discuss chapters 28-31.
We would like to invite anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic faith to come and discover what we believe as Catholics. The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults or RCIA program explores the faith in a small group format. Our RCIA program will begin September 19th. Classes are held every Wednesday evening from 7:00—9:00pm at the church.
The RCIA program is also for those who were baptized Catholic, but did not receive any or all of the other Sacraments (Reconciliation, Eucharist, Confirmation) as a child.
Finally, for those of you who would just like a “refresher” course in what we believe as Catholics, you are welcome to join us !
Registration will be available after all of the Sunday Masses on
August 12th and 19th
