Adult Religious Education

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) is the process by which adults become members of the Catholic Church. The process is concerned with the total formation of the person: believing with the church community; praying with the church community; and serving with the church community. This gradual development culminates in the celebration of the initiation sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and the Eucharist at the Easter Vigil. For more information, please contact Jay Deitrich in the parish office at 641-236-7486.

Women mark your calendars… our next book study will begin Thursday, January 4th and go for eight weeks, ending February 22nd. The group will meet at McNally’s from 7-8:30 PM and we will be studying Christopher West's book Love is Patient but I'm Not. This book offers West's reflections on Pope Francis' book The Joy of Love. It focuses on the heart of the pope's meditations on the famous "Love is patient and kind" passage from 1 Corinthians 13.  Interspersed throughout the book are short prayers and questions for reflection designed to help you open your heart to God and experience His unconditional, merciful love more fully. There is a suggested $5 donation to pay for the books.  Contact Janet Koller if you are interested (so we can have enough books) at 641-325-1649 or by e-mail at
