Get ready! On September 3rd we will begin another RCIA journey. RCIA stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. This is a weekly meeting on Thursday nights from 7-9 pm in the Parish Center where we explore the teachings of the Catholic Church. Who comes to RCIA? While RCIA is meant to be focused on non-Catholics who are inquiring about the faith, it is also a great opportunity for Catholics to learn more about their faith. We invite and welcome anyone who wants to learn more about the faith: non-Catholic, active Catholic, skeptical Catholic, young or mature, member or non-ember. There are no costs, no obligations, no tests, and no pressures - just a gentle, non-coercive way of discovering the beauty and mystery of the Catholic faith. Please invite a friend to join you in the journey. Please call Fr. Tom to register or if you have any questions, 402-572-0499. Read the Full Story
That Man is You will begin its fifth year at SJ in September. TMIY tackles real issues facing real men. It look sat the leadership role that has been entrusted to men and addresses the temptations and struggles men face in a culture that attacks authentic manhood. It also helps formulate a plan that allows men to overcome these obstacles. TMIY is modeled on some of the country's leading men's programs, combining scripture, solid secular research, and a little fun to address the pressures and temptations facing men in our modern culture. It seeks to form authentic leaders who will be capable of transforming their homes and society.
We gather at 6:45 am on Saturdays in the Parish Center for a light breakfast, coffee (bring your own mug), and fellowship. At 7:15 am we enjoy a presentation that combines the best scientific research with the teachings of the Church and wisdom of the Saints. It's followed at 7:45 with breakout groups that provide an opportunity to discuss what's been presented. We finish at 8:15 am so that we can get back home or attend the 8:30 Saturday morning Mass. Men are invited to join TMIY anytime! For information, check out www.thatmanisyou.org Read the Full Story
