RCIA —  those wishing to become catholic and those who are catholic to dig deeper into what we believe as catholics. The mission of our church is to “make disciples” – followers of Jesus Christ. To be a disciple is to be a learner. To be a disciple of Jesus Christ is to be engaged in a process of learning about him; the master. This process is a “life long” commitment and endeavor.

In the RCIA program people are coming to an awakening of their faith. This may be in another non-Catholic church or no formal religious education. Thus, there is a seeking to join the Catholic church. In the RCIA Program people simply learn and grow in their faith, gain knowledge of the church and contemplate if they are called to be a member of our Church.

BIBLE STUDY – Classes are held on Mondays at 6:30 p.m. at the Parish Center (Hemlock). Come and bring a friend and your bible for class discussion. Everyone is invited – young and old!!  ( No Bible Study February 19 to April 16 – begins again April 23).
