MESSAGE FROM FR. LARRY- FRANCISCAN ECOLOGY INITIATIVE

  • Brothers and Sisters,

    As I announced to you last weekend, our Provincial, Fr. Kevin Mullen, OFM, asked the friars to share an update and summary of the Franciscan Ecology initiative.  As I reminded you, this is our Pastoral Strategic Plan the friars have undertaken to consider which of our current 30 ministry sites we will be able to staff in the coming years.  That summary is available here, in English and in Spanish.  

    We appreciate your concern and your prayers.

    Peace to you all,

    Fr. Larry

The children then return to the Eucharistic Assembly to continue the celebration of the mass with their families.

RCIA- Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN BECOMING A ROMAN CATHOLIC?   

How does an adult become a Roman Catholic - become baptized, confirmed, and receive First Eucharist/Holy Communion?

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (the RCIA) is the Roman Catholic Church’s process by which adults are brought into the worshiping community, the Church, and mature in their love for Jesus Christ.  The RCIA process unfolds over several months and includes study of the Bible, the Mass, the Sacraments, the seasons and feasts of the Church year, prayer, the teachings of the Church, reflection and discussion.
