EUCHARISTIC ADORATION

In December 1999, St. Michael’s opened a Eucharistic Adoration Chapel, adjacent to the main church body.

 

Persons interested in participating in this devotion are encouraged to contact the program coordinators, Anne Kootz, 856-4543 or Bernie Brandenburg, 994-2744 to enroll and fill schedule vacancies.

 

This devotion offers the opportunity for private, personal and quiet worship.

R C I A

             
RCIA is an acronym for Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults. St. Michael's RCIA program is a process by which adults are initiated into our Church community. Individual attention is provided throughout the program for practicing Christians from other faith traditions.

The program is open not only to people wishing to join the Church but also for Catholics who want to learn more about their faith.                                                               (More: click image)
                                                                                                                         
The program's popularity comes from the fact that all the "action" is "hands on" - all questions asked are answered in open and free dialogue.

St. Michael's program is in session each Wednesday evening beginning in September and continuing through Pentecost Sunday each year.

Interested parties are encouraged to contact the parish office, 870-257-2850 or stmichaelcv@yahoo.com for more information.
