LIFT – Young Adult Ministry (Living In Faith Together)

This fairly new ministry focuses on  reaching out to all Young Adults (18-39 years of age) in and out of Church who are interested in spiritual and self-growth, building long lasting friendships, fellowship, social activities, and making a difference through service.  This ministry gives an opportunity for young people to maintain or renew their commitment to the Catholic Church, nourish and reignite their spirit through the Word, and reflecting God by performing selfless acts of kindness through community service.  Our goal is to gather our brothers and sisters, strengthen our relationship with God first, family/friends/others second, and lastly ourselves.  We hope to inspire and share our mission of LIFTing ourselves and others to be closer to god by Living In Faith Together.

Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) Ministry

Most people "come to faith" on the "arm of a friend".  Come and serve in the RCIA Ministry as a Sponsor, a Catechist, or another member of the RCIA team.  The RCIA Ministry forms those who intend to enter the Catholic Church, for the first time, to journey towards initiation through Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist.  It also forms those who have been baptized in their Christian communities as well as Catholics who have not received all the Sacraments of Initiation.  It will make a difference in your life, in your Catholic Community's faith life, and the lives of those on the RCIA journey.
