All throughout November we will be remembering our loved ones, but we will also celebrate a special liturgy to pray for and with one another.

Thinking of Becoming Catholic?
If you are thinking about becoming Catholic or if you were baptized Catholic and have not received 1st Eucharist or Confirmation, the Church offers a process known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA).  Participants meet once a week beginning in the fall to discuss the Sunday Gospel and explore Catholic faith.  The process generally culminates will participants being fully initiated into the Catholic Church at Easter. 
Please let us know if you are interested.
