First Reconciliation and First Communion
RCIA: (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process through which women and men become members of the Roman Catholic Church. The process is concerned with the total formation of the person into believing, praying, worshipping and serving with the community of the Catholic Church. This gradual process of development and preparation for a life of Christian discipleship culminates in the celebration of the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist at the Easter Vigil.
The RCIA is designed for those seeking Christian baptism, for those baptized in other Christian denominations who now seek full communion with the Catholic Church, and for already baptized Catholics seeking to complete sacramental initiation through the reception of Confirmation and Holy Eucharist.
Extraordinary Ministers to Sick and Homebound
These Eucharistic Ministers fulfill a very important need for our Church. They take Communion weekly or monthly to those who are recovering from illness, who are homebound due to disability, or to permanent residents in area nursing homes.
Facilities and Maintenance Committee
Assures the maintenance of our parish facilities. Volunteers assist in all phases of maintenance, set long term goals and agenda for facilities. This ministry works to continue to enhance the beauty of our church and school campuses. Volunteers are needed to plant flowers, trim trees, spread pine straw, prepare beds for planting, or whatever interests you. Anyone who enjoys gardening or working outdoors with a cheerful positive, enthusiastic attitude is welcome. Just call to let us know your interest and we’ll find a way for you to help that fits your schedule.

Following the phone call from the family after the death of a loved one, the priest is notified and he calls or goes to visit the family. Arrangements are made for the time and date of the Funeral Mass. The family of the deceased is invited to come to the parish office and is guided through the Funeral Mass. family members are involved in choosing the Scripture readings, picking some favorite liturgical hymns and invited to bring up the gifts at the offertory. On some occasions our Seniors help with the reception after the Funeral.
