Adult Faith Formation Opportunity
Please join Dr. Fulvio Di Blasi, Director of the Thomas International Center, on Saturday, Sept 6 at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room of Saint Joseph for the first of ten talks on the foundations of Catholic faith presented for discussion. The title of his first talk is "Man's Capacity for God and Natural Revelation."
High school aged boys are invited to attend the Quo Vadis Group, which meets once a month, on a Sunday evening in the 620 “white” House of Saint Joseph Parish from 6:00– 8:00 p.m. Quo Vadis provides a fraternal environment and an opportunity to gather for fellowship, prayer and a discussion on discernment and vocations. Dinner is provided. The next meeting will be Sept 14. Please contact the Office of Vocations for more information at 919-832-6279.
ARE THERE CATHOLIC ADULTS WHO MISSED RECEIVING CONFIRMATION IN YOUTH?
They should not be deprived any longer of the graces of this Sacrament. Please contact Catherine in the parish office, who will be pleased to explain the steps.
THE RCIA PROGRAM
Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is conducted each year for persons in the community who are interested in the Catholic Faith. It is a process for bringing into the Catholic Church both those who have never been baptized (Catechumens) and those who were baptized in a non-Catholic Christian denomination (Candidates for Full Communion). RCIA is also a good way for adult Catholics who have never been confirmed to prepare for that final Sacrament of Initiation. With no commitment on your part, we invite you to participate if you are interested in knowing more about the beliefs, practices, and devotions of Catholic Christianity, or if you would like to become a member of the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil Mass in 2015. Our classes begin today, from 10:30 – 11:20 a.m. in the 614 “Red Brick” House. Contact Bob Olson at 919-851-4125 with questions or for more information.
