Night of Inquiry

Wednesday, September 6  •  7 p.m.   •   Kinane Center (215 Ridge Terrace)

Do you know any adults who might be interested in becoming a Catholic
or learning more about what it means to be a member of the Catholic Church?


Is there an adult that you know who would like to receive the Sacraments
of Baptism, First Communion and Confirmation? 


Do you know anyone who has been away from the Church for a time
and now might feel the desire to reconnect with the faith?


If so, then please extend our invitation to join the St. Paul of the Cross Parish Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) Sojourner Program. As one of our “Sojourners” they will be able to learn, in an open and welcoming environment, what the Catholic Church believes, teaches and proclaims to be revealed by God. 

Join us for a Night of Inquiry to answer any and all questions about this process on. There is no charge or obligation to commit to the program. All faiths and backgrounds are welcome. The formal RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) sessions will begin on Wednesday September 13, 2017 at 7 p.m. in the Kinane Center and will be held weekly.


For more information, feel free to pick up our brochure “Thinking About Becoming Catholic?” at the entrances to Church or at the rectory, or contact Deacon Bob Bulger.
