Baptism Class

June 11 at 3:30 p.m. in the Chapel.

RCIA

As the Month of Mary comes to an end, let us remember that just as our Blessed Mother brings us to her Son Jesus, it is our task also to bring others to the Lord. Is there someone you can invite to explore the Catholic faith – someone unbaptized, or baptized in another Christian tradition? Perhaps you know a Catholic adult interested in being Confirmed.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which adults and older children who are seeking baptism become members of the Catholic Church. We also invite those baptized in other faith traditions, as well as adult Catholics who have never been confirmed. Meetings are held every Wednesday evening, 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. in the RCIA Room and we welcome new inquirers year round. Individuals move at their own pace. Childcare is available. If you know someone interested in learning more about our Catholic beliefs and practices, please have them contact Deacon Denzil Lobo in the parish office at Denzil.Lobo@stfrancismadison.org.

Protection of Children

All volunteers working with our youth must attend an initial training session with the Protection of Children. Our next session will be held on Wednesday, October 26, at 6:30 pm in St. Clare Hall (you only need to attend one training session). Please call the church office at 601-856-5556 or email sallieann.inman@stfrancismadison.org to register for a training session.

Communion for the Homebound

If you or someone you know is in a nursing home or assisted care facility and needs communion brought to them please contact the office at 601-856-5556.
