Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)

People who are interested in receiving the Catholic Sacraments of Initiation are invited to participate in our series of classes to prepare them for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). These classes are for people who have been baptized in another Christian faith who wish to convert to Catholicism; baptized Catholics who may not have received the Sacraments of the Eucharist and/or Confirmation; or fully initiated Catholics who wish to learn more and deepen their understanding of their Catholic faith. Classes start in September and continue throughout the year culminating at the Easter Vigil.

That Man Is You

THAT MAN IS YOU! Men's Fellowship
 
Men of all ages are invited to join St. John's Men's Ministry: That Man Is You! (TMIY!) Sessions meet in the parish center for 13 weeks, from 6:45–8:30PM, Tuesdays, beginning Sept. 10.
 
TMIY! is an interactive men's program that
combines the best research from science with
the teachings of the Catholic faith and the
wisdom of the saints to develop a vision of a
man fully alive. The program was developed
by Steve Bollman, founder and president of
Paradisus Dei out of Houston, TX. Each week's
meeting includes presentation, small group
discussion, and fellowship.
 
For more information, contact George Heim, TMIY! coordinator, at or call 952.890.9434. If you'd like to be a part of this ministry, but can't join us on Tuesday nights, let George know!
 
Each session includes:
  • 6:45PM – Refreshments
  • 7:00PM – Inspiring video is shown
  • 7:30PM – Small group discussions
  • 8:30PM – Conclusion
There is no cost, however, weekly free-will donations are graciously accepted to offset the cost of materials and refreshments.
