PSR Catechists (teachers & aides)
- Parish adults and teens serve as Religious Education Catechists (teachers & aides) for the PSR Program.  Various programs are offered periodically in the parish and throughout the Archdiocese to further the knowledge of the catechist in the Catholic faith that, in turn, allows them to better educate and share faith with their students.  Anyone interested in this ministry should contact the Parish Office.



FOR ADULTS

RCIA Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults - An opportunity for those who approach the Catholic Faith for the first time to experience and learn Catholic beliefs and the Catholic sense of community.  This faith journey is nurtured by the community where participants come together to learn, to share, and focus on faith.  The process is ongoing and may take 1-3 yrs., depending on the individuals readiness to participate.

Catholic Men’s Fellowship - This group of men meet on the second and fourth Sundays of each month at 7:30 am.  Meetings are open to any man in the parish, high school age and older, who would like to spend some time with their fellow brothers in Christ for prayer, faith sharing, and to encourage one another in their responsibilities as Catholic men.

Baptism Preparation Class - This monthly program offers instruction for parents prior to the Baptism of their first child. The goal of this class is to deepen the parents and godparents understanding of and participation in the sacrament, enabling them to more fully accompany their child on their journey of faith.
