Where do you begin?

Well, you just begin from where you are right now!

Many adults who are entering the Catholic Church, or even those who are thinking about it, follow a process called “R.C.I.A.” (Rite of Christian initiation for Adults).

For information please call the parish office at 941-497-2931 and ask for Neil Chirico. A meet and greet open to anyone interested in becoming Catholic is scheduled for October 4th, 2018 at 5PM in the Education Building Room 7&8.
