When: Most Sundays following the 10:30 AM Mass
What: Parish library with 4000+ audio books, videos, and books plus several subscriptions to Catholic magazines and publications are available for review/take out (A/V and books). The age range is from pre-birth to coping with aging and death/dying. Approximately 66% of the library usage is derived from our children’s books and audio/video sections. Our book categories include pro-life, health, spirituality, and prayer to mention a few among more than 40 categories.
Where: While our location is behind the stage (our hidden jewel) in the auditorium, the extra steps to take advantage of our offerings, many of which aren’t available at the public library, are well worth the effort.
When: The library is open whenever the church complex is open. Most weekdays, we have a volunteer staff person available after morning Mass for about an hour (9 AM to 10 AM) and Sunday mornings after masses. Signing out books or A/Vs is a snap. Just follow the directions posted in our foyer and at the desk. Assistance can be provided when staffed.

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS:
What: This program is designed for men and women who wish to become Catholic. The Catechumens, that is, adults who have never been baptized in any Christian religion and the Candidates, that is, baptized non-Catholics, make up the membership of this group. Classes are held on a regularly scheduled basis. The instructors are a team of adult catechists who work with the director in formulating the curriculum and liturgical celebrations. The Catechumens are baptized and the candidates received into the church and both groups are confirmed at the Easter Vigil Mass each year. Information for prospective members or catechists can be obtained by calling the Parish Office. The same program for children is also available.
