Interested in Becoming Catholic Or Receiving 1st Communion and/or Confirmation?
We have a new RCIA program this year that will be more spiritually based with more faith sharing. We are really excited about this new program. If you know someone who is interested in the Catholic Faith or never received their 1st Communion and/or Confirmation, this will be a great opportunity for them. Please consider asking someone to join the church, even if you have asked them before. The RCIA classes will be starting on Thursday, September 12th at 7 pm. The classes will last between 1-1.5 hours.
