What's Happening at Holy Redeemer Parish
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Our next opportunity will be Saturday, March 21st. No construction experience is necessary. Morning or afternoon shifts available. If you are interested contact Bob Allen. We carpool from Holy Redeemer parking lot.
HAVE you been worshipping with us, but never officially took the step to become Catholic? HAVE you been away from the church... have now returned, but want to know more? HAVE you been a Catholic all of your life, but never celebrated all of the Initiation Sacraments (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist)? HAVE you joined us from a different background and would now like to find out more about the Catholic Church?
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults
The RCIA is a process by which people can explore the Christian faith practiced in the Roman Catholic
Tradition. The RCIA can serve as a tool to learn more about our beliefs and can also, if you desire, be the path that leads the way to joining the Catholic Church.
