The history of The Catechism continued…
The Synod Fathers in 1985 asked for a compendium of all catholic doctrine regarding both faith and morals to be composed. It was to be a point of reference for regional catechisms. They asked that the presentation of doctrine be biblical and liturgical. The Catechism of the Catholic Church was formed as well as the United States Catholic Catechism for Adults which we use in RCIA.
Please pray for our catechumen and candidates seeking full communion with us—Golie Ebrahimian and her husband Brian Rentfro, David Jackson, Heather Strahan, Philip Blount, Sam Meadors and Robert Martinez.
RCIA meets weekly at 6:30 p.m. If you know someone that is interested in learning more about the Catholic Faith contact Wollie.wolcott@stfrancismadison or call the parish office.
All NEW Volunteers must attend an initial training. Our next class will be held at St. Francis in the Library on Wednesday, January 30th at 6:30 pm.

VIRTUS Protection of Children – As a part of the ongoing efforts for the Diocese of Jackson’s Protection of Children Program, you will have access to monthly VIRTUS Protecting God’s Children training bulletins. You will receive monthly email reminders from VIRTUS Online when a bulletin is available, which is within the first full week of each month. If you do not receive these emails, please notify Sallie Ann in the church office.
