Sacrament of the Sick or Sick Calls (Holy Anointing & Holy Eucharist) Contact the Parish Office if there is anyone at home who cannot attend Mass and receive the Sacraments because of illness or age. Please notify the Parish Office when you or a friend are hospitalized and in need of anointing. The hospital does not always contact the Parish if a parishioner is in the hospital so please be sure to have someone confirm with the parish if you or a family member wish/need to be visited!
What is RCIA? RCIA is the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, it is for those who are looking for more information into the Catholic Faith or those Catholic adults who would like to learn more about their faith again or those who have missed formation or sacraments. If you enter RCIA it does not mean you have to become Catholic, it simply means you would like more information. Classes usually run from early September until after Easter (Easter is when those who wish to become Catholic, receive the Sacraments).
For more information about RCIA or to sign up for classes please call 319.524.8334
