The community invites! Now is the time to ask you, as a member of the Holy Rosary or St. Bridget’s parish family, to identify persons who are interested in learning more about the mystery of God’s love as lived in the Catholic tradition. On the weekend of August 19&20, you will be given an opportunity to pass along those names to the RCIA team, http://www.fairviewplasticsurgery.com/ team,  and to volunteer to help with this process designed to share our Catholic faith. We will need cookie ministers, sponsors, and enrichment persons.

Please include RCIA in your prayer life. Contact Ellen Lierk, Beth Bourn, or Natalie Collins if you know of someone interested in deepening their relationship with God through our Church.
