If you know of anyone who may be contemplating joining the Catholic Church or have simply inquired as to what it means to be Catholic please feel free to inform them that Father Gutgsell and myself would gladly walk them through the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) program beginning this fall. There is no obligation to join the Church, only a willingness to “Taste and See” if God may be calling them in this direction. Also, if any baptized Catholic wishes to learn more and dig deeper into their faith, they are welcome as well. Sessions will resume in September. The day and time will be determined by those who participate. Each one of us is called by God to evangelize. Help us by being a voice of encouragement for those who may be seeking. It is as easy as simply asking them!

Peace and Grace. Deacon Terry Ficenec
