Initiation Sunday - April 12th at 5 PM

Dear Saint Mary's Community,

Once a year, students of R.C.I.A. (The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) celebrate their full initiation into the Roman Catholic Church and become Catholic!  They gather together for the entire academic year to prepare for this special day and moment in their lives.  Some of them will also be baptized-a truly wonderful experience to witness and share as a community. Their celebration only makes sense if you celebrate with them. To do so, please come this Sunday, April 12th at 5 PM (Chapel).
