Becoming a Catholic Christian

Are you or someone you know interested in becoming a Catholic Christian? Are you or someone you know (over 7 years old) who has been baptized Catholic but not confirmed and/or receiving Holy Communion?

We offer an opportunity to come together in a small group to grow in our relationship with the Divine Person, Jesus. Sessions focus on Jesus’ new life that unites one and all with God our Father in the power of Holy Spirit. We reflect on Jesus’ teachings as carried on in the daily life of the Church and so are formed to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist through the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults at Easter. There are separate sessions for children, youth and adults. You are welcome to participate with your questions, your insights and your faith story in a warm accepting setting.

If you have any questions or desire more information, please contact the Faith Formation Office via email or phone.

Collect

O God, Who gladden us year by year
as we wait in hope for our redemption,
grant that, just as we joyfully welcome
Your Only Begotten Son as our Redeemer,
we may also merit to face Him confidently
when He comes again as our Judge.
Who lives and reigns with You
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever.

Fourth Sunday of Advent and
The Nativity of the Lord

The faithful are bound to observe the obligation of Holy Mass for a Sunday as usual for the Fourth Sunday of Advent with attendance at the Anticipated Mass (23 December) or on Sunday morning (24 December). The faithful are bound to observe the obligation of Holy Mass for Christmas at the Vigil Mass (24 December) or on Christmas Day (25 December). Thus, the faithful have two obligations back to back. It would be helpful to the faithful to publish this information all throughout this Advent.
