Seminars and workshops
Journey with us in RCIA
In September we will begin a new journey in faith to share the richness of the Catholic Church and our parish family through Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, RCIA.
We invite you to learn what the Church teaches in an open and welcoming environment. These sessions also are opportunities for you to ask those perplexing and difficult questions you may have about the Church. These gatherings are for inquirers and are open to people who are unbaptized, as well as those who are baptized Christians from other denominations, and for Catholics who were baptized but did not receive the sacraments on Confirmation and/or Eucharist.
For more information please contact Father Jose or our pastoral assistant, Bonnie Thiele Hunt at 306-522-8583.
