    RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

    We will be starting an RCIA program in the fall.

    The R.C.I.A. is the process that welcomes and introduces adult inquirers (18 years of age and older), who have felt the call of God to join our Catholic Faith. The initiation process is primarily for those who are not baptized, or baptized in another Christian tradition, or for those who may have been baptized in the Catholic tradition but have never been catechized and/or fully initiated (have not received Eucharist and Confirmation).

    If you are interested or someone you know who might be interested please speak with Fr. Xavier or call the church office.

    Summer is almost over!!!

    Using PAG (Pre Authorized Giving Plan) You can go away and still support your Church.

    It is no secret that Precious Blood Parish has been doing many renovations and has day to day expenses with staff and maintenance. This will only happen if we can raise enough money in our weekly collections. PAG is a very convenient way to support your church! You can go away for the summer/winter and still help maintain our church financial needs. If you are sick - you know you support your church. This is something to think about! Precious Blood Parish needs you and your support.

    God Bless
    Fr. Xavier
