Our gathering place is the JP II Room on the second floor of the San Damiano Building. All are invited to start our time together at the 8:30 am Mass in the Day Chapel.

Have you been searching for a way to answer Jesus’ call to, “Come, follow me,” and explore ways to deepen your spirituality? Do you want to become a part of a community built on wisdom, productivity, and vitality on a journey to better know, love, and serve Jesus? Our RCIA program (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) provides a welcoming group setting where the journey of faith and moments of conversion can be celebrated. If you are interested in becoming Catholic or need to complete your sacraments of initiation with Holy Communion or Confirmation, we invite you to join us at our RCIA sessions in the JP II Room on the second floor of the San Damiano Building on Sundays after the 8:30 am Mass. These first meetings are all about inquiry, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions. For more information, please contact Sr. Rose in the parish office.

The success of our faith formation programs is due in large part to the generosity and dedication of our catechists who share their faith and love for Jesus with our youth. We are seeking faith-filled, energetic adults who love working with children to serve as catechists in the following grades:
Kindergarten and First Grade Tuesday 4:30 pm
Fourth/Fifth Grade Tuesday 6 pm
Please contact Miriam Flores in the parish office for details. We will provide you with the training, curriculum, and support you need to succeed in this ministry.
Career Transformation Ministry provides practical guidance to support job seekers in finding and transitioning to a new position. We tie our discussions to scripture. Examples of topics include: resume assistance, best practices for networking, and interviewing skill development. We invite you to join us anytime for meetings on Mondays from 7–8:15 pm in the Martha Room. While we discuss scripture as it pertains to those looking for their next career, this ministry is open to anyone regardless of faith. For more information, please visit www.crossroadscareer.org.
