Parish Response Survey

Are you satisfied with your experience so far? 
What suggestions do you have to improve what we currently offer? 

You are strongly encouraged to share your opinions and ideas with us in this brief survey as we evaluate possible changes moving forward. The results will be shared with the parish. We ask that you take 2 minutes to reflect on up to six base questions about our Pandemic Mass response.

Parish Blood Drive
Tuesday, August 4, 2020
1:00 PM - 7:00 PM
St. Christopher Emmaus Center

The St. Christopher Parish Blood Drive is back to serve our local community!

Why Donate?
Blood donation is a community responsibility. While you're reading this, a local area patient needs blood. The Community Blood Center blood supply comes from caring donors like you. It takes about one hour of your time. When you give blood, it gives someone another smile, another hug, another chance. It is the gift of life. (from www.givingblood.org )
The Time is Now...
Have you, or has someone you know expressed any interest in learning more about Jesus and the Catholic faith?
Do any of these statements apply to you or someone you know:
• I have never been baptized.
• I am baptized but have had little or no faith formation.
• I am baptized and have had faith formation in another religious tradition.
• I am baptized Catholic, but have not received the sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA):
The RCIA is a process that helps adults discern if the Lord is calling them to a journey of faith in the Catholic Church. A new group of inquirers into the Catholic Faith is forming. Perhaps you are, or someone you know, is searching for a way of life that will help you or them be connected to the life and grace of God through the Catholic Church. All are welcome.

Sessions will begin in August.
