Peer Bible Study

What is the Bible, where does it come from, and what is its purpose? Join us this Fall semester for "Genesis to Jesus" to learn basic Catholic principles for reading Scripture and to survey the broad outlines of the books of the Bible. This peer bible study also offers a safe place to get your questions answered. If a small group setting is new to you, you'll be surprised how quickly you'll be helping others find answers as well. Join GroupMe for updates.

BECOMING CATHOLIC

Are you interested in coming into the Roman Catholic Church? Do you want or need to receive one or all of the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist? The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) may be for you. RCIA is a process during which people learn and talk about the basics of the Church. Our RCIA program is for area college students. Generally, preparation for the sacraments starts in the fall semester but please contact us anytime of the year.

EXPLORE CATHOLICISM

This section of our website explores many aspects of Catholicism: history, beliefs and current events. This is in no way a complete list, nor are the explanations extensive.
