Do You Know Someone Who Wants to be Catholic?
Do you know someone in your family, at your workplace or school who might be thinking about becoming Catholic? Have you talked to someone recently or in the past who showed an interest in the Catholic faith? Do you know someone who seems to be missing something in their lives? Maybe you are being called by God to lead them to know the Lord Jesus Christ!
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) is the process by which men and women who think and feel they hear a call from God, are lead to conversion and belief in the Lord. It is a gradual process during which the teachings of the Gospel are studied and pondered, the requirements of the Christian life are explained and a call to faith is fostered. It is above all an invitation by God to the person to become His son or daughter . . . to be born again through baptism and/or fully initiated through Confirmation and Holy Communion.

31 Club for Priestly Vocations
Our Lady of Grace Parish is seeking to focus and increase awareness for the need for religious vocations and to pray for that grace. Because of our belief in the power of prayer, one of the suggestions to encourage more vocations was to form a "31 Club" from the members of our parish.
What is the 31 Club?
As a member of the 31 Club you would agree to one extra Mass each month. You would offer this Mass:
- 1) For priests and religious who have served our parish in the past
- 2) For those serving now
- 3) To ask the Lord to call future vocations from this parish family
- 4) To pray for seminarians who are currently studying and preparing for the priesthood
To make it easier to make your commitment, you are asked to choose a specific day (for example, the second Tuesday of the month) or a date (perhaps the sixth of each month) to attend Mass. If you miss your chosen day or date, the nearest convenient day is fine. The Mass does not have to be offered here at our parish, any Catholic church will do. We are looking for people to commitment to the "31 Club" for one year beginning this March 2017.
There is a calendar in the north vestibule of our church. If you are able to make this commitment please sign up. Welcome to the 31 Club!
