Check the FMF page for more details of the many volunteer positions available. In support of the total FMF program, we have made a commitment of $750 per quarter to FMF. We need help to meet this parish commitment. Envelopes for your donations are in the pockets at the Church exits and will be on the volunteer sign-up table.

For those who are interested in becoming Catholic, there is an initiation process, called Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults or RCIA. This is a formal education in the teachings of the Catholic faith. It involves several months of classes, along with a period of personal discernment, culminating with initiation into the Church at the Easter Vigil. Classes begin on October and are held on Monday nights at 7 pm. If you are interested in becoming Catholic or would like to know more about the process, please see our RCIA page.
