Join us on November 1, at 6:15 p.m., following the 5 p.m. Mass, for a teaching about sacred relics and exposition of 150 relics of the Saints.
Father Carlos Martins of the Companions of the Cross will lead us in this devotion, bringing with him over 150 relics, some as old as 2000 years. Among the treasures will be relics of St. Maria Goretti, St. Therese of Lisieux, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Faustina Kowalska. In addition, there will also be present a portion of the veil of Our Lady, as well as one of the largest remaining pieces of the True Cross in the world. Those in attendance will be able to examine and venerate each relic.
In the Church’s history many miracles and healings have been worked in the presence of relics, and many have been healed through this ministry. Please do not miss this opportunity. You are encouraged to bring your articles of devotion such as rosaries, holy cards, etc., and pictures of ill friends or family members which you will be able to touch to the reliquaries as a means of intercession.

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) classes begin Tuesday, September 23 from 7 - 9 p.m. in the Parish Center.
All who are interested in finding out more about what it means to be Catholic are welcome to attend this meeting.
RCIA classes are held weekly and over the course of several months those who attend the RCIA classes are educated on what the Catholic Church believes and are given the oppurtunity to ask question about those beliefs.
The RCIA Program is for if you:
1) Are NOT Baptized and are 8yrs old and older
2) Baptized in another Christian faith and wish to become Catholic
Just because you start RCIA, doesn't mean you are committed to finish. If you are merely curious about what Catholicism is, please feel free to come. All are welcome.
