Parish Activities

RCIA Journey In Faith Series Serves As Our RCIA Process
At St. Paul’s Parish

It offers Catholic adults who have not yet received 1st Holy Communion or Confirmation the opportunity to prepare for these sacraments.
IT ALSO OFFERS NON-CATHOLIC ADULTS the opportunity to explore the Catholic faith and/ or prepare for sacraments of initiation into the Catholic faith. The Journey in Faith Series also provides Catholics with a wonderful way of renewing, updating, deepening or returning to the Catholic faith. The series gives one a deeper understanding and a heartwarming experience of relationship with Jesus. Those who attend report how they experience the warmth of closer fellowship with other parishioners. We urge you to pray for people whom you think might benefit from attending and then invite them to attend. Offer to come with them.

THE RCIA JOURNEY IN FAITH IS OFFERED TUESDAYS AT 7:00PM, BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 12th, in the school conference room. If interested, call Larry Durback at 610-797-9733, ext. 14.
