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.

RCIA

Like Amos in the first reading and the disciples in the Gospel, God has chosen this journey for us. God wants us to also choose this journey for ourselves, and waits for us to do so. This is not a choice we make once and for all; it is one we are constantly remaking. We keep setting out on the journey God is calling us to take; we need to keep inviting God to have his way in our lives, saying with Mary, ‘Let it be done to me according to your word.’

If you know someone whom God is calling to learn more about the Catholic faith please contact Wollie Wolcott at wollie.wolcott@stfrancismadson.org or call the parish office.

Meetings are held every Wednesday evening 6:30-8:00 p.m. in the RCIA Room and we welcome new inquirers year round.  New classes to begin in June.

Childcare available.

Baptism Class
