Do you know of someone who is interested in becoming Catholic? The RCIA process is a journey of faith discovery. Each week, participants learn an aspect of our Catholic faith and are given the tools to discern how God is working in their lives. This year, we will have a shared group of 5 Parishes participating together that will start October 11th and will be taking place here at Most Precious Blood Parish on Wednesdays from 7 pm - 9 pm. Individuals from Most Precious Blood, Our Lady of Guadalupe, Parish of the Atonement, St. John Vianney and St. Theresa will enable people to journey together, ask questions, pray and understand more about our faith. If you or someone you know is interested, please contact Father Greg to set up an appointment and to begin the process.
