Frequently Asked Questions
How do I become Catholic?
Most Catholics do a fair amount of introspection and prayer before making the decision to join the Church. Once a person has decided they wish to be Catholic, they should join an Adult Faith Formation class, also known as Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). RCIA classes are held at the parish, and you will begin to learn what it means to be Catholic. This lasts several months, culminating with the person being brought into full communion with the Catholic Church.
Are there any other Mass times than the 10:30 AM Mass?
There is a 4 PM Vigil Mass on Saturday, and a 9 AM Mass on Sunday for the residents of the retirement community. Anyone is welcome to attend those Masses, however, it including a robust sharing of the sign of peace, gathering around the altar for during the Celebration of the Eucharist, fellowship and sharing after Mass with coffee and donuts and some of the other traditions people may observe from our Faith Community Mass.
