Catholic Kids Homilies
Catholic Kids Media is an effort to evangelize the culture, providing quality Catholic programming for kids that does not water down Catholicism. We develop resources for parents and teachers to instruct children in the Faith and practices of prayer. These videos tackle tough questions such as “What is the Eucharist?” and “What is the Trinity?” in order to help kids understand and love the strange and wonderful thing that is Catholicism, so that they might live Christ-centered lives.

It communicates and interacts through audio, video, text and images on a multi-lingual, multi-culture, multi-channel, multi-media and multi-device plain.

RITE of Christian Initiation of adults
RCIA: An Invitation to Quench Our Deepest Longing
The human heart seems ultimately to manifest itself in the desire to be loved and to love in return. Until then, as St. Augustine said, our hearts are restless until they rest in God who is Love. As Catholic Christians, we are privileged to share God’s love through Mass, the sacraments and how we live our life.
Do you know someone thirsting for God? Do you know someone not baptized or baptized in a different Christian tradition thirsting to know what it means to be Catholic? Do you know someone already Catholic but who has not yet received Confirmation or the Eucharist? They may be thirsting, too!
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a place to ask questions and seek understanding about our Catholic faith. We would love for you to invite anyone you know who thirsts for the God who loves them. For more information, please contact Ann Lynch or call the parish office.
