The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is beginning on September 8th, 2016 with full entrance into the church occurring at Easter of 2017. RCIA is the process whereby a person learns about the beautiful Catholic faith that we sometimes take for granted. Please pick up a brochure at the entrance of the church if you or someone you know is interested in becoming Catholic or if you just want to deepen your understanding of the faith. This will be an excellent way to grow closer to God by learning about Catholicism and how it promotes heroic goodness! For more information, contact Dcn. Jeff Austin at 715-676-3186 or Jane Gerend at 715-387-2019.
Women at the Well is a lay apostolate whose mission is to provide direction, hope and healing to women whose lives have taken a turn for reasons they may or may not understand and who, as a result, are experiencing emotional and/or spiritual distress. The goals of the ministry are to support women who are suffering by applying biblical and ecclesial principles to their lives and their situations through prayer and individual work with reliance on the Holy Spirit. It is not professional therapy, but an opportunity to "drink from" rather than "jump in". All sessions and inquiries are 100% confidential.
We will meet at 6:30pm in St. Francis Hall on May 19th. Questions? Call Judy at 715-305-2261.
