Spiritual Growth

AT THIS TIME OF THE PANDEMIC, ALL ACTIVITIES AND CLASSES ARE CANCELED.

CCD: 

Spiritual formation classes for our youth, grades K-12, are held on Sundays following Mass, approx. 10:30-11:45am.  Registration is held in August and classes run mid-September through the beginning of May.  For more information, or to register, contact our Director of Religious Education, Lori Templet, (870) 856-2261.

Youth Group: 

The youth of our parish, grades 5-12, meet every other Wednesday evening throughout the academic year in our Parish Hall.  Various activities are planned, as well as fundraisers to make it possible to attend Catholic Youth Events in and around Arkansas.  For more information, contact Michael Burton, Youth Group Director, (870) 834-8002.

Scripture Study: 

Parishioners are invited to attend an open forum discussion on books of the Bible and other religious material.  Sessions are held in the Parish Hall on Wednesdays prior to Mass.  For information on what is currently being studied, as well as class times, please call the Church Office, (870) 257-2850.

RCIA:

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.)
Are you interested in the Catholic faith?
Do you know someone who might be interested in becoming Catholic?
Would you like to learn more – what is Catholicism all about?

If you are interested in learning about the Catholic Faith or wish to experience the joy of being Catholic, the RCIA program is designed for you.  It is open to anyone, baptized in another faith, those not baptized, or those who have been away from the Church for a period of time and would like to come back.

Attending the RCIA classes does not automatically commit you to becoming Catholic. It begins as an inquiry into the Faith. Some do not intend to become Catholic but simply want to learn more about the Catholic Religion.  Classes prepare participants to receive the necessary Sacraments and make a Profession of Faith on the night before Easter.

Classes meet every Wednesday, September to June, in the Parish Library following the 6pm Mass, approx 6:45-8pm.  Join us; no cost or obligation.  For more information, contact RCIA Director, Lori Templet, (870) 856-2261.

Upcoming Retreats: 

Please watch the bulletin as details develop for upcoming Parish Retreats.
