Our community shares and celebrates this journey with you, through a process called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). Through a series of weekly sessions, which will begin this fall, interested adults will be gradually introduced to the Catholic faith and way of life in a small group setting. We invite you to explore the RCIA. For more information please contact Eileen Edwards, Director of Religious Education, at 330-296- 6434.

Stewardship Thought
July 22, 2018 - "...come away by yourselves to a lonely place and rest awhile."  -- Mark 6:31

Do you spend time, every day, alone and in silence listening to how God is calling you? If not, you are missing out on a wonderful opportunity to develop a more personal relationship with Him. Unless we talk and more importantly, listen to God every day, how else will we know how He is calling us? Consider making a retreat this year, spend some "alone" time with God.
