  • Whole Family Catechesis

    Our Parish Families are invited to grow together in faith on the First Sunday of each month. We gather at Holy Redeemer's Healy Hall beginning at 8:30 AM with a light breakfast and then have a special guest speaker or family event focused on faith topics relevant to family life. There is time set aside for separate adult and children learning groups. We close by attending Mass together at 10:00 AM. Whole Family Catechesis is a part of our Families of Faith program but is open to all families in the parish!

    Note: Check the calendar for special events that may reflect time and place change

RCIA - Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults


  • Has expressed an interest in becoming Catholic?
  • Was baptized Catholic as a child, but has not celebrated the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist?

We offer an opportunity to come together in a small group to learn more about our faith. Sessions focus on the teachings and experience of Church and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist during the Easter season. You are welcome to participate in the process with your questions, your insights and your faith story in a warm accepting setting.
