“Laying Foundation Stones” sessions: on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 – 8:00 pm in the MacKenzie Room (Church basement). The 7th Session on April 17th will be “The supernatural nature of the Sacraments of the Church.”

All welcome!

Are you seeking to become more fully a member of your parish by being confirmed? Are you curious about becoming Catholic? Are you an adult and have not yet received one of the sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Eucharist, Confirmation)? Or are you a parishioner looking to deepen your faith? Our parish is beginning a series which we are calling “Laying Foundation Stones.” This series will run as a continual program throughout the year, winter/spring and again in the fall.

Each week our parish welcomes many different people through its doors. Just as these people come from a variety of backgrounds, so too do they come at varying stages in their faith walk with Christ and His Catholic Church. As we seek to grow deeper in that faith and relationship with Jesus, there are numerous milestones that we encounter along the way, where Christ asks us to come follow Him even more closely and gives us a means by which we can do so. These are the sacraments and especially those sacraments of initiation which mark our commitment to follow Him more fully and faithfully in His Church.

These sacraments are meant to further that walk with us and Christ along with our brothers and sisters in the Catholic faith. They are not meant to be an end in themselves but as a continuing process. These foundation stones are meant to give anyone a basis on which they can further build upon, recognizing that the core to our relationship with Christ is nourished and centered upon the Mass, which makes present the sacrifice of Jesus on Calvary for our salvation. It is our hope that these stones will lay down a base which will continue to be built upon for the rest of our lives as we continue walking with Him.
