As he was considering his own move into the Church, Donald Johnson traveled around the country to get the story for himself, from some of today's most interesting and articulate Catholic voices.

JOIN ONE OF THE SACRAMENTAL PREP TEAMS!
There are a number of teams that you can join if you are feeling called to help others receive the sacraments!
RCIA [Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults]- Help adults who are interested in exploring the Catholic faith and possibly receiving the Sacraments of Initiation. This would involve a commitment of regular meetings throughout the year. Our goal is to be able to offer RCIA year-round and we are looking for team to help make this happen.
First Reconciliation- Help families prepare their child to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the first time.
First Communion- Help families prepare their child to receive the Sacrament of First Communion.
Confirmation- Help teens, their parents and sponsors prepare for Confirmation.
Marriage Prep- Help with the annual marriage prep weekend St. Alphonsus hosts, usually held in August. We are also looking for sponsor couples who will work with an engaged couple as they prepare for the sacrament of marriage. Contact the office if you are interested in joining this ministry.
