Birthday Cakes  Fr. Ted

A huge Thank You to our Hispanic Parishioners who spent so much time and effort planning, coordinating, cooking, serving, and clearing up.  We had a wonderful time.  Thank you for the festive music, the absolutely delicious authentic food and, of course, the pinatas! You are a blessing to our parish.

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) Inquiry Classes to Begin

Thursdays, 7-8pm, Starting November 7th

Do you have questions about the Catholic Faith?  Are you considering becoming a Catholic?  Maybe you are already baptized but have not practiced your faith for a long time.  Maybe you are looking for a way to fill a need for connection with like-minded Christians and with God.  

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is a safe place where questions can be asked, concerns broached, and where you can learn just what makes the Catholic Faith different from all other Faiths.  In RCIA, you will be introduced to important Catholic concepts and we'll explore the rituals and rites that have been in place since they were instituted with the first Christians at the time of Jesus.We will also develop connections with other people and work to develop a loving relationship with God.  

If you are interested in RCIA, please complete the form below and bring or mail it to Terri at the parish office, or deposit it in the collection basket on Sunday.  Our first meeting will be Thursday, November 7th at 7pm in classroom 5.  

Contact Terri 503-761-8710 x101 or Will Rice 503-810-7292.
