RCIA

We have a lot in common with John the Baptist. God wants us to do what he did—to point the way to Christ, to lead others to Jesus by what we say and do.

 

Just as John the Baptist has a special name which denotes what he did we too have a special name and that is “Christian.” This means that we are to be like Christ to the world. To lead others to God the Father through Christ. May we be blessed with the grace of God, to fulfill our mission as faithfully as John did his.

 

If you know of anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic faith please contact Wollie Wolcott at
