SEEKING CHAIRPERSONS FOR PARISH COUNCIL We are currently seeking chairpersons for the Worship, Education, Outreach, Activities, and Finance committees on Parish Council. Please prayerfully consider offering your service and expressing an interest in being considered to sit on the parish council. The council meets every other month and the chairpersons would have a 4-year term being responsible for reporting activities of the ministries under their committee to council. If interested, please complete the small form found at the entrances of the church and turn it into the parish office or through the Sunday collection basket as soon as possible.

RCIA: AN INVITATION TO JOIN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH Each year the Catholic Church welcomes new members through a process known as the RCIA or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. Through this process interested men and women come to know the presence of God in their lives. The RCIA process also allows our parish community to welcome new "family members." During the weeks of instruction and preparation the parish family supports their entry into the Church, prays for them, and helps them understand Catholic prayer, worship, beliefs and activities.
