ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT CATHOLICISM?

There are many reasons why people choose to become Catholic. Some are married to a Catholic and are ready to explore this faith further. Some may have attended a Catholic funeral and were moved by that experience. Perhaps some admire a person who is Catholic, and they would like to explore Catholicism too. If you are curious about the Catholic faith, we are offering the R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) process again this fall. If you are interested in exploring Catholicism, or have questions about it, please call the parish office.
