Catholocism Study Program

Do you feel like you need to understand your faith better? Do you feel like you need to be able to defend your faith?

This is the study for you.

You are invited to join your fellow parishioners for the Catholicism series presented by Bishop Robert Baron. This amazing study will consist of a 12 week course which will focus on the church formed by Jesus Himself, the Roman Catholic faith. You will be transformed when you watch and engage others with the Church’s amazing history, and feel a sense of awe as you experience your own dynamic walk through time.

The weekly study will be offered beginning the Monday after Easter, April 2nd at 6:30 on Monday nights.

Registration will be held in the church office. Please sign up early so we know how many study books we will need to order.

Thank you and I hope you come and bring friends!

The study will be facilitated by Lori Dahlstrom.


Baptism Preparation/Sacrament

Worshiping with us at Mass is a time to spiritually prepare both you and your family for the Sacrament of Baptism. Parents who are registered in the parish desiring and planning baptism for their child (six years of age and younger) are to come by the office to register for the baptism class. Pre-baptismal classes are required for both parents and Godparents. Godparents must have received the sacrament of Confirmation and, if married, married in the Roman Catholic Church and be receiving Holy Communion regularly. Only one Godparent is necessary. If two (2) are desired, then male and female are required. Please come by the office to register for the baptism class. Classes are offered in English only.

The next classes are scheduled for April 17, 2018 and May 1, 2018 at 6:00 pm.
