Catechesis is a responsibility of the entire Christian community. Faith formation has never been more important.
This should not be the work of catechists and priests alone, but of the whole community of the faithful. The Christian community follows the development of catechetical processes, for children, young people and adults, as a duty that involves and binds it directly. (GDC 220)
Becoming Catholic (OCIA) is our process for those adults inquiring about becoming Catholic Christians and for Catholics still in need of receiving Confirmation, Reconciliation, or First Communion.
If you, or a loved one, would like to learn more, please contact our Becoming Catholic coordinator, Jodi Phllips.

During Lent, we tend to focus on prayer, fasting, and penance. While these are important, let’s set these aside for a moment and consider the REAL challenge of Lent: the conversion of souls. Including our youth.
Every parent and youth leader knows that being a teen in today’s culture isn’t easy—especially for teens who want to grow in their faith. So much in our world and culture is working against them to draw them away from the faith, and they need your help. This is where you come in.

You probably noticed a second collection envelope this month entitled “Steubenville”. You can help young people attend the Steubenville conference this summer. Right now, we have 15 reserved spots and are still looking to fill two more. At a cost of almost $500.00 per person, it gets very expensive.
Your Lenten prayers and sacrifices, when offered for our young people, will be a source of strength on their spiritual journey. As you journey through Lent and anticipate the triumph of Easter, pray for our young people preparing to attend the Steubenville Conference this summer.
Make this Lent count. Our youth—and the future of the Church—depend on it.
