THE JOURNEY OF FAITH BEGINS WITH QUESTIONS If your faith journey has stalled or if you have questions about what Catholics believe, RCIA and RCIA for Children are available to help anyone who wants to learn more about the Catholic faith in preparation to enter the Church and receive the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Communion. Whatever your questions, know that there are many like yourself who desire a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and a community in which to thrive and worship in order to deepen that relationship. RCIA sessions start on September 16th, but it’s not too late to join. Please call MJ Antone at 249-2660 if you would like to participate.

Living Word Bible Study starting September 23rd
The Psalms: Gateway to Prayer. For nearly 3,000 years, men and women from diverse lands and cultures have been lifting their hearts to God by praying and singing the psalms. This Bible study shows us why these beautiful and timeless songs have such universal appeal. As we learn how to make the words of the ancient psalmists our own, the psalms become our gateway to deeper prayer. Study begins Tuesday, September 23rd, 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the Family Life Center, Room 107. Contact Nancy McDonald at 904-626-5989 for more information.
