Find Out about Becoming Catholic  

There will be an information session about RCIA (The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) on Sunday August 25 at 11:30am in the Rectory. RCIA is for those over the age of 18 who have never been baptized, were baptized in another Christian religion and are considering becoming Catholic, and for those who were baptized Catholic but received little or no religious education. Those in the RCIA process receive the sacraments of Baptism, First Communion, and Confirmation at the first Mass of Easter. Come to the information session to find out more . . . or contact Fr. Joe.


Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet. Alpha can be a place to start or a place to start over again if you have had a bad experience with church or Christianity. Alpha is a series of gatherings that invite participants to come to a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and discover what it means to be his disciple. Alpha is for regular churchgoers, for infrequent churchgoers, and for non-churchgoers. Alpha focuses on the fundamentsal of Christian faith in a welcoming non-judgmental way.
