RCIA begins September 8 Do you know someone interested in the Catholic faith?   Or do you want to learn more about your faith?   RCIA begins September 8.  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 it 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.   There are no costs, no obligations, no tests and no pressure - just a gentle, non-coercive way of discovering the beauty and mystery of the Catholic Faith.   Please invite a friend to join you on the journey.   If you are interested or would like more information, contact Fr. Tom at 402-572-0499.     Read the Full Story
