Afternoon at the Movies
Our feature for the month of December, "I Can Only Imagine”. Growing up in Greenville, Texas, Bart Millard suffers physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father, Arthur. When Arthur becomes terminally ill, he finds redemption by embracing his faith and rediscovering his love for his son. Years later, Bart's troubled childhood and mended relationship with his dad inspires him to write the hit song "I Can Only Imagine" as singer of the Christian band MercyMe. We will be showing this on Wednesday, December 19, from 1-3:30 PM in the Meeting Room at the CLC. No pre-registration required, drop-ins welcome.
First Friday Coffee
Upcoming dates for First Friday Coffee on Friday, December 7 and January 4. This is a wonderful opportunity to combine worship and fellowship. First Friday Coffee takes place on the first Friday of each month immediately after the 7:00 AM Mass at St. John Evangelist. Join us in the Narthex for coffee and light refreshments.
Memories in Print Club
We are starting a new club! Each month the members will participate in reflection time using a set of five questions. The questions will be designed to help you reflect on your past, and recall your memories. From there, you can choose to start a personal journal or make notes to share with your family. Our group will meet once a month on the following Wednesdays, from 1-2:00 p.m. in the Catholic Life Center Meeting Room. Can't make it for all of the meetings? You can join in at anytime. Dates: January 23, February 27, March 27, April 24 and May 22. For more information, contact Pat at the CLC, 920-467-4616 ext. 314.
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
RCIA instruction takes place each year, in small group or individual sessions, with initiation into the Catholic Faith taking place during the Easter Vigil Mass.
Who is RCIA for?
- The unbaptized: The primary focus of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is on those who are not already Christian and have not been catechized.
- Baptized but uncatechized: Those who have been baptized either as Catholics or as members of another Christian community, such as Baptist, Methodist, or Lutheran. These individuals may not have received complete religious formation or instruction, and they may or may not have celebrated Confirmation or Eucharist.
- Those seeking full Catholic Communion: These are baptized, practicing Christians from other denominations, who seek entry into the Catholic Church.
For more information, read our Frequently Asked Questions.
RCIA includes the celebration of the sacraments of baptism, confirmation and Eucharist as well as all the rites of the catechumenate. The initiation of adults is a gradual process that takes place within the community of the faithful. Together with the catechumens, the faithful reflect upon the value of the paschal mystery, renew their own conversion, and by their example lead the catechumens to obey the Holy Spirit more generously.
