Are You Interested in Joining RCIA
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process established for the universal Church for individuals to become Catholic and receive the sacraments of initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist. The Rite speaks of conversion as a “spiritual journey.” Centered on fostering a deep relationship with Jesus and the Church He founded, this journey takes place through distinct stages over a period of time suitable to bring about a significant experience of the parish community, and commitment to the liturgical and moral life of being a Catholic. There is no obligation involved for those who attend our casual and informal sessions. Our Inquiry Sessions begin Tuesday, Sept. 13, in St. Theresa’s Room.
Who is RCIA for?
Adults in need of Baptism.
Those baptized in another Christian tradition who desire to become Catholic.
Those baptized Catholics in need of First Communion and/or Confirmation.
Practicing Catholics who wish to learn more about their faith.
Catholics who have lapsed in their faith and want to return to good standing.
For more information call Diana Wolfe, 838-1113.
Totus Tutus 2016
Totus Tuus was held at St Jude this year, Sunday July 17th—Friday July 22nd. They spent the week learning and sharing with each other and on Friday they had a celebration of dessert, water balloon fights & popsicles on the playground. Since they were all smiling, we knew they had a good time.
Join us for a free 20 minute workshop presented by Dr. Josh May, D.C. on stress, the effect it has on the body, and ways to effectively manage it. Meet on Wednesday, August 24th at 7:00pm in St. Mary’s Hall. Refreshments will be provided. Managing stress is important because when you are less stressed, you are more able to love and serve God and the people in your life!

What is SCRIP?
SCRIP is a fundraising method popular with non-profit organizations. With SCRIP, retailers offer gift certificates/cards to non-profits at a discount. The non-profits sell the gift cards to families at full face value. The families redeem them at full face value, and the discount or rebate is retained by the non-profit organization as revenue. The parish/school office has SCRIP available to local grocery stores, restaurants and department/retail stores. Purchasing SCRIP is easy. You choose the gift cards you want to purchase and pay either by check or cash. As each gift card is sold the school receives a percentage of the sales. The percentage may be as small as 1% or as large as 16% depending on the retailer. Every little bit adds up. The profits from the sale of SCRIP go to the PTO account to be used for funding of events, repairs and purchases for the school. So next time you read the Bulletin and see, “We sold $5,175.00 last week for a profit of $204.77; with 20 families participating”, you may understand a little more what it means.
