How to receive the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist
in the Catholic Church
The process for becoming Catholic or completing the sacraments of Intitation in the Catholic Church is known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Our sessions meet most Thursday nights throughout the year at 7 p.m. beginning with Breaking Open of the Word prayer in the church. If you are thinking about becoming Catholic, the beginning Inquiry sessions will help you get started. Please contact the parish office to register before attending, this way we can assess your needs and discuss with you the best plan to help you get ready for baptism, confirmation and Eucharist. Ordinarily the process takes nine months to a year (occasionally longer), depending on whether or not you are already baptized and other individual needs.
If you are a baptized Catholic who
needs Confirmation, please see the information under “Adult Confirmation.”
Questions may be directed to
, our Director of Adult Faith Formation.
More information can be emailed to you.

“Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?”
Quote by Corrie Ten Boom
Dutch Christian who helped many Jews escape the Holocaust and was imprisoned for doing so.
Steer with us…please pray five minutes this week for the people of our parish.
Weekly FIVE MINUTE PRAYER
What would happen if we all prayed for one another for five minutes each week?
Starting in October 2013, we are encouraging our parishioners to pray just 5 minutes each week for all the people of our parish. If 6000 people pray for 5 minutes, that's 30,000 minutes or 500 hours of prayer offered to our Eternal Father for one another. Imagine the kind of power that will come from this magnitude of prayer!
5 minute prayers are posted in our weekly bulletin and on our Pinterest page--read along, or simply pray from your heart!
