RCIA Classes begin August 24th

NEW OFFICE HOURS!!! Until further notice, the parish office will be open Wednesday Thursday and Friday, 9-noon.

RCIA Classes Catholicism is an entire way of life. But today it’s not known. We might be familiar with different aspects of the Catholic faith, but how does it all fit together? And what difference does it make for our lives? SYMBOLON: The Catholic Faith explained opens up the “big picture” of the faith in a way that helps us know it, live it, and articulate it to others. Through beautifully crafted teaching and video, author, speaker and theologian, Dr. Edward Sri leads a team of dynamic teachers who provide a clear and comprehensive explanation of the Catholic faith. Filmed on location in Rome, the Holy Land, Calcutta, Symbolon journeys through the core teachings of the Catholic Church and focuses on our encounter with God in the sacraments and moral life. Classes start Wed. Aug. 24th. 715-423-1351 or: sspeter-paul@hotmail.com.

The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a beautiful catechesis program endorsed by Mother Teresa, Pope St John Paul and the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia (the Nashville Dominicans), will begin in the Wisconsin Rapids Deanery in the fall of 2016. The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (CGS) is a“Montessori based” religious education program that nurtures the child in his/ her relationship with the Good Shepherd. Created by Sofia Cavalletti and Gianna Gobbi about 60 yrs. ago, it is based on the belief that the child and God are already in a relationship. This is supported by both the deanery and Assumption Catholic Schools. The program is once a week with1to 2 hour sessions for children 3-6 yrs. of age. It will be held in the school at SSPP and will start in mid - September. Please call 715 569 4271 or email: mklinkhammer@assumtioncatholicschools.org
