Signs provided at each location proclaim “Abortion Kills Children,” “Adoption the Loving Option,” “Jesus Forgives & Heals,” “Lord, Forgive Us and Our Nation,” “Abortion Hurts Women,” “El Aborto Mata Ninos,” “Life – the first Inalienable Right,” “Pray to End Abortion” and “Pregnant?

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.
