Parishioners have been receiving emails and texts from scammers posing as their Parish priests asking for help and trying to get money and gift cards.  Do not believe these communications or reply to any of them.  Our priests would not and never have contacted parishioners for help in such a manner.

PENTECOST SUNDAY

 

Pentecost (Whitsunday), with Christmas and Easter, ranks among the great feasts of Christianity.  It commemorates not only the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and Disciples, but also the fruits and effects of that event: the completion of the work of redemption, the fullness of grace for the Church and its children, and the gift of faith for all nations. (Catholic Culture – May 2024)

Are you interested in joining the Catholic Church? Then RCIA (Rite of Catholic Initiation for Adults) is for you!!! The RCIA process introduces you to the fundamental beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church. It helps you explore what it means to be a Christian. It prepares you to enter fully into our community of faith through the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. Becoming Catholic is more than just learning scripture and rituals – it is discovering how to be a disciple of the Lord. We welcome all those who are new to the faith, the unbaptized or baptized, baptized Catholics who desire to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, or Confirmation and, those who are simply just searching for God. Please contact Fr. Mirek prior to Feb. 11 to begin your spiritual journey!
