Prayer for the Family

Jesus, our most loving redeemer, You came to enlighten the world with your teaching and example. You willed to spend the greater part of Your life in humble obedience to Mary and Joseph in the poor home of Nazareth. In this way, You sanctified that family, which was to be an example for all Christian families. Graciously accept our family, which we dedicate and consecrate to You this day. Be pleased to protect, guard, and keep it in holy fear, in peace, and in the harmony of Christian charity. By conforming ourselves to the Divine model of Your family, may we attain to eternal happiness.

RCIA means Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and Children. Christian Initiation is a spiritual journey of adults and children. It is a process by which uncatechized individuals and individuals Baptized in another Christian denomination learn about the Catholic Church. Catholic sponsors who are willing to share their faith experiences with new members and journey with them throughout the process are always needed. Those seeking to become Catholic may contact the Rectory at 814-944-8509.



Blessed are those who hear the word of God and observe it.
