Living Rosary at St. Cecilia Parish - October 29th

A Living Rosary will be prayed on Saturday, October 29, immediately following the 4:30pm Mass. This is a Rosary in which 66 individuals form a human chain and each leads one prayer of the Rosary. We will pray the “Patriotic Rosary” (one Hail Mary dedicated for each of the 50 states). If you have 10 individuals, you may pray a decade together as a group. Those interested in participating, please email Adele Robinson at adelescp@gmail.com.

Thank you.

RCIA Classes Beginning

The Rite of Christian Initiation For Adults, or RCIA, is a program for bringing adults into the Catholic Church. It is for those whom might belong to another religion but want to convert, those who have never belonged to a church and those who were raised Catholic but have not received first communion and confirmation. We invite anyone interested to join us. Our program consists of a series of informal meetings where a small team of parishioners from St. Cecilia’s shares the faith with the RCIA students and answers their uestions. We meet roughly every other Monday evening starting in  September continuing until Easter. You make no commitment by joining the sessions.
Please extend this invitation to anyone you know who might be looking for a spiritual home. Classes are beginning now.  Anyone who wants to join our program or just wants to find out more, please contact Joel Farrell at 508-881-3738.
