ABC: About Being Catholic

August 2, 2016

RCIAABC is an introduction to the Catholic faith for inquirers and those seeking to become Catholic, and a refresher course for Catholic adults who wish to go deeper in their faith.

 

 

  • “I’m married with a couple of great kids; I have a job I enjoy and
    a nice home… but I feel as though something is missing from my
    life.”

     

  • “I was baptized Catholic and even went to a Catholic grade school,
    but I got away from my faith in high school and wasn’t confirmed –
    and I’ve not been back since. But I think I might want to.”

     

  • “I enjoy being involved in activities with other people who have
    direction in their life. I thought I was one of those people, too… but
    lately, I’m wondering if this is all there is.”

     

  • “I attended church with my grandmother as a child, but I haven’t
    participated in any kind of religious activity since then. I’m
    wondering if I can recapture some of that childhood joy.”

 

We all have questions, but few find easy answers. Jesus simply says: “Come, follow me.” We extend this same invitation to you. As you come to know us, you will discover that although Jesus didn’t offer any easy answers, He did give His followers a framework for living and loving the questions. The Catholic Church is a community of believers, who try to live the values He espoused in a world that often regards those values as absurd. Although you might consider the questions you have now your heaviest burden, they actually are your greatest resource! We welcome you and your questions. Contact Lori Mazzone at 345-9874, ext. 222, and ask about the “ABC: About Being Catholic” program; a phone call won’t commit you to the process, but it can give you the information you need to make a personal decision that’s right for you.  

 

THIS WEEK’S TOPIC: The Church: God’s People – The people who make up the Church: the living (the Church Militant), the holy souls in purgatory (the Church Suffering), and the saints in Heaven (the Church Triumphant)
