The RCIA or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is a process through which non-baptized men and women enter the Catholic Church from 7 years old above. It includes several stages marked by study, prayer and rites at Mass. Participants in the RCIA are known as catechumens.
Under our Welcome menu you will find links for the Daily Mass Reading which updates every day as well as Sunday Mass Reading for the following Sunday’s mass. It is a great way to be able to read along during mass if you so wish or take time to reflect on the passages during the week and see what message they have for you. One quick note is that if it is a Sunday and you want to see the Gospel for today then click on the Daily Mass Reading link as the Sunday listing will be for the following week.
Sincere thanks to all who contribute financially to the Parish. We are very grateful to you for your loyal support.
