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 Neil Chirico. Meet and greet for the beginning of this year's program is being held this coming October 5th at 5:30PM in the Education Building (Classroom 7/8) at 5:30 PM. Don't miss out!
