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.

R C I A
People often wonder
what those four letters mean. They stand for
of Christian Initiation
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).
