Do you want to learn more about the Catholic faith?
Are you or is someone you know interested in becoming Catholic?
Are you an adult seeking First Communion and Confirmation?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, we invite you to journey with us this year for the RCIA! Every year adults are welcomed into the Catholic Church through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). RCIA is a wonderful process for learning about the Catholic faith, pursuing your faith questions, connecting with others in our faith community on a similar journey, and entering into life as a disciple of Jesus in the Catholic Church.
Meetings for RCIA will begin Tuesday, September 13th from 7:00 9:00pm in Old St. Mary’s Parish Center (835 N Milwaukee St.). We would love to have you join us as we seek to follow Jesus together and witness to His life-giving love! Contact Chad Griesel, Director of Adult Faith Formation, at gro.l1490716458imhcr1490716458a@cle1490716458seirg1490716458 or 414-271-6180 for more information. We look forward to hearing from you!
Thursdays during Lent (beginning March 2), from 5:30 to 6:45 pm, we will be doing a small group book study of Jim Wallis’s America’s Original Sin.

We will be meeting in the SS Peter & Paul Church Center and additional groups will be created if demand is great enough. Sign up at tinyurl.com/LentenBookStudy2017.
