IS GOD CALLING YOU TO BE A CATHOLIC?

Have you been searching for a deeper meaning in your life? Is something missing? Do you need a new direction for your life’s journey? Does your life seem unsettled? Have you thought about the fact that God may be nudging you to enter into a process and become a Catholic?  To find an answer to these questions, you might want to consider entering into the “Process of Christian Initiation.”  This process formally begins on Monday, Oct. 1 at 6:30 pm in the Holy Name Hall.  Questions?  Call Fr. Dennis.

Who is this process for?
  If you have never been baptized, or were baptized in another religion other than Catholic or was baptized Catholic and did not receive any other sacraments, then this is the process for you.
