RCIA Inquiry Night

Are you interested in being baptized?

Do you want to learn more about becoming Catholic?

Are you baptized Catholic but need to be Confirmed?

On Monday, May 20, at 7:00 PM, come and meet with Father Pat and Father John to discuss receiving the Catholic Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist) as adults.  No prior exploration of the Catholic faith is necessary; only a desire to learn more about how to experience the life and salvation Jesus Christ intends for you. This evening is intended for those who have never been baptized, for those who have been baptized in the Catholic Church but never confirmed, and for non-Catholic Christians interested in possibly becoming Catholic.  Click here to sign-up!

Bishop Barron’s: “The Mass” Video Series

To register, please click here

This spring as part of our parish Year of the Eucharist, SMI will host a study of the Mass for parents and all adults. In this series, you will learn about the Mass as Encountering Heaven on Earth, guided by Bishop Robert Barron.

Parents have the responsibility of helping their children and families learn how to love the Eucharist and appreciate the Mass. But before they can pass that on to their children, many parents must learn about the Mass and the Eucharist.

The video series (released this summer) is produced by Word on Fire Catholic Ministries and facilitated by Father John Regan.

The study includes three 90 minute sessions, and will take place on Tuesdays from 7:00 – 8:30 pm on May 14th, 21st, and 28th, at St. Mary Immaculate.
