The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (R.C.I.A.) offers the opportunity for people to take a closer look at our Catholic faith so that they can decide whether to become a Catholic or to receive the sacraments. If interested in inquiring about our RCIA program or know someone who is, please call the Parish Office. Classes will begin next month.|

|Tuesday September 30th - Lord, Teach Me to Pray is a three-part prayer series for men and women based on Ignatian Spirituality. Part 1, “Praying Christian Virtues”, helps deepen prayer life, and discover what to do for dryness and obstacles in prayer. It also introduces the different methods of Ignatian prayer, meditation, contemplation and Consciousness Examen. Small groups will meet with 2 trained facilitators for 1 – 2 hours once a week to pray and faith share. At present we are offering Part 1 for women only. The group will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 30th at 7 pm in the parish library. To register, call Joyce Mathur at 973- 625-0826.|
