Parish Groups

 

Faith Formation

Ongoing formation in the Catholic Faith is offered to persons of all ages from chidlren to adults. 

RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

The Rite of Christian Initiation is the process in which young adults and adults are prepared for the Sacraments of Initiation - Baptism, Confirmaition, and Eucharist.  It is for those who have never been baptized or for Catholics who have not completed their sacraments.  Christians baptized in other faith communities who are considering becoming Catholic also take part in this process. 

Baptism Preparation

Parents and godparents are prepared for the upcoming celebration of baptism of an infant or a child.  The ongoing Catholic faith formation of the one to be baptized is also stressed. 

Eucharistic Adoration and Rosary

On Tuesdays at 6:30p.m. we meet in the chapel to pray the rosary in the presence of Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.
