Which Son Did the Father's Will ?


Jesus said to the chief priests and elders:
A man had two sons.
He came to the first and said,
'Son, go out and work in the vineyard today.'
He said in reply, 'I will not, '
but afterwards changed his mind and went.
The man came to the other son and gave the same order.
He said in reply, 'Yes, sir,' but did not go.

St. Raymond's CARE LINE


Do you know a parishioner who is in the hospital?
... or recuperating at home? ... or in rehabilitation?
... or in a nursing home? ... or is homebound?

If so, maybe a little note or card would bring a smile to this person's face.

St. Raymond's wants no one to feel alone or forgotten. Our Care Line will reach out by sending a note. We cannot do that, however, unless YOU help us identify who they are. Get their name and address to the Care Line. How?

  • Find the Care Line Box in the church vestibule. Put the name and address on the attached paper and drop it in the box; OR
  • Send the name and address to the email address: straycareline@gmail.com; OR
  • Call the parish office to leave the name and address.

The Care Line volunteers will send a note.
Help spread St. Raymond's cheer!



 

R C I A

People often wonder what those four letters mean. They stand for the 

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

If someone is thinking of converting to Catholicism, the RCIA is meant for him/her. Or perhaps a person was baptized a Catholic, but never received First Communion or Confirmation. Now they might think that they are too old, that they "missed the boat". Not at all! Many people find themselves in that situation, for many different reasons. The RCIA is meant for them, too. Some may wonder if this RCIA is going to be like being back in school. Not quite. It is a group of people who discuss and learn about faith in God, together. It can actually be fun! If you might be interested please call us at the rectory (351-4224).
