Are you thinking about joining the Catholic Church?

Where do you begin?

 Well, you just begin from where you are right now!

Many adults who are entering the Catholic Church, or even those who are thinking about it, follow a process called "R.C.I.A." (Rite of Christian initiation for Adults).

 For information please call the parish office at 941-497-2931 and ask for Fr. Martin. Anyone non-Catholic with questions or who are interested in becoming Catholic can join us for our Thursday sessions at 5:30 PM in the Education Building in Classroom Grade 7/8. See our full schedule for classes for 2016-2017

Got a Catholic Question?

St. Vincent DePaul Society

"Whatever you do for the least of my brothers, that you do for me"

Have you thought to yourself, "How can I help the poor and the struggling of this beautiful community?"  

St. Vincent DePaul Society has a local group of volunteers who are committed here in Venice and Nokomis to helping individuals and families who are struggling to deal with the basics of daily life needing shelter, food, clothing, electricity, and more!  In many cases they are without the support of family and friends.

Join fellow parishioners, working in teams of two, from Our Lady of Lourdes and Epiphany Cathedral, in serving the needs of the less fortunate and sharing in the joy of being a Vincentian.  Volunteers are need to:  respond to telephone messages, schedule appointments with clients, meet with them, assess their needs and help them find solutions to their problems.  Also; to help manage a small food pantry supported by donations, recruitment of volunteers, and fund raising.

Job requirements are simple:  Compassion, empathy, and a desire to help others.

If you feel like you can commit a few hours one day per week, please call us at 941-493-2027.
