RCIA: For adults (18+ or done with high school). The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is an exploration of the Deposit of Faith which Jesus Christ brought to fulfillment, and the Church holds and cherishes, in earthen vessels. For those drawn to these Truths, it is also a process of bringing into the Catholic Church both those who have never been baptized (Catechumens), those who were baptized in a non-Catholic Christian faith community (Candidates for Full Communion), and even those who have been baptized yet need to receive their sacraments of Initiation. Please see our RCIA page for more information.
Catholic Schools: For information of Catholic schools please log onto www.macs-schools.com Remember to schedule an appointment with Father John to sign the Parish Voucher form. Have your Parish ID Number (number on your weekly envelopes) on hand when contacting the Office to set up an appointment. Contact the Parish Office for further questions.
