What We Offer

If you are Catholic and would like to join the Parish, we would love to have you join us!  You can fill out the Registration form found on the right of this page. Bring or mail your completed form to the Parish Office.  We look forward to meeting you.

If you are not Catholic, but might like to become Catholic, The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a series of classes designed to introduce new candidates to the Catholic faith and prepare them for the sacraments of initiation.  If you are Catholic but have been away for awhile, you are also welcome to join the RCIA to reaffirm you faith, refresh you faith and get back in our community.

The RCIA ministry leads the efforts of the parish to bring new members into the church. The activities involved by the ministry volunteers are: 1) set-up all meetings, 2) all record-keeping, 3) moral support for the candidates ,4) organizing the "Rites", 5) planning a retreat, 6) hosting the group for gatherings at the Cathedral, 7) planning Holy Saturday Services and reception, and 8) other miscellaneous activities.

Why This Ministry Is Performed: Persons seeking to join the Catholic Church need to feel welcome, learn about Catholic teachings and practices, become participating members of the various ministries of the Church.

Who Belongs: Parish volunteers eager to share their faith with others and potential RCIA candidates.

How Often Do They Meet: Every Wednesday evening from August until Easter at 7:30 pm to 9:00pm in the Parish Center lower level.
