The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) classes begin on Wednesday, September 6 at 7:00 PM in the Parlor. R.C.I.A. classes are an opportunity for anyone to learn about the Catholic faith, so they can discern their call to become a member of the Catholic faith at the Easter Vigil. The classes also offer an opportunity for Catholics to increase their knowledge of our faith to grow in their spirituality. Please call Monica Ebelhack at (828) 327-2341 to sign up for R.C.I.A. We are searching for 4 catechists to teach faith formation classes in grades 1-6 on Sunday mornings, 5 catechists to teach grades 1-6 on Wednesday afternoons, and 10 catechists to teach Confirmation preparation on Wednesday evenings. Please call Monica if you are able to assist our youth to learn and grow in their faith. Please consult the schedule for Mass times for the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on August 14 & 15. This is a holy day of obligation. Fr. Nohé and I will be attending the Convocation for Priests in our diocese in Charlotte on August 16-18. We have accepted a bid to replace our current sound system and we have received approval from the diocese to move forward with installation of this new sound system.

Sincerely Yours in Christ,   

Fr. Larry LoMonaco
