Email threat 

We have been alerted that several parishioners have received emails from someone posing as our pastor, Fr. Joshua Voitus, requesting a favor. Please delete such email immediately. This is a Scam!

R.C.I.A. is the program through which non-Catholic are instructed in the teachings of Catholicism and are ultimately received into the Church.

Join us on Mondays at 7:00 pm in the Assembly Room as we begin our 2019-2020 R.C.I.A. year. There is no commitment for coming to the first classes, so even if you aren't sure if you want to be Catholic, but you think it might be possible then stop by and check it out. Also, if you are already Catholic, but would like to brush up on basic Catholic teachings then you are welcome to join us as well.

No registration necessary and no fees. For any questions please contact Lorena Castillo-Ritz at 704-644-4653
