Sponsors Needed for RCIA

What a privilege and a wonderful experience to be a soul friend to someone who is being initiated into the Church.  We have candidates who have no family members that are catholic and we are praying for good stewards to come forward to share their faith with our new members. We need ordinary faith filled people who are in love with Jesus and are willing to walk the walk with our newcomers as they journey to the Easter Vigil. If you want to gift us with your presence, time and talent, please call us at 760- 945-8040.  “The gift you have received, give as a gift” Thank You!

Pre-Baptismal – On a regular basis, leaders conduct classes for parents and god-parents preparing for the baptism of an infant.
