Connect With Ministries

Boldly Announce Your Ministries

OpenChurch is a platform to help you spread the word about your ministries and the ongoing efforts to make a difference. We would use this area to tell others about the overall mission of your church and how and where your ministries are headed.

Spread the word through the use of the internet where you can keep everyone informed of all the activities, needs, and events. Now with open church you don't have to have a full time web staff to spread the word, you can start for free, and the add features as you grow. If your church grows to a point you want more customization or features we're here to help either directly or by connecting you with one of our approved partners.

Become a Catholic - RCIA

Are you someone or do you know someone who...

* 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 weekly in a small group from autumn to spring to learn more about our faith. Sessions focus on teachings and experience of the Catholic Church and prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmations, and Eucharist during the Easter season.
