Eucharist

Because sharing at the Eucharistic Table is a sign of unity in the Body of Christ, only those in communion with the Catholic Church may receive Holy Communion. To invite others present to receive Holy Communion implies a unity which does not exist.  Those who do not receive Holy Communion still participate in this rite by praying for unity with Christ and with each other (read more). For information on First Communion, please call the parish office at 517-482-1346.

Confirmation

The Confirmation Team, sponsors and mentors work together for 10 months to prepare candidates for the sacrament of Confirmation.   The Confirmation Team is getting ready to start the new year and needs your help. If you have or know a 9th – 12th grader who has not been confirmed and has not been notified by the parish, please contact the parish office to prepare for the Sacrament of Confirmation. For questions, contact our Faith Formation Director, Teresa Hurd by emailing hurd@stcas.org.

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults)

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process by which adults become members of the Catholic Church. It is a process in which the whole parish participates as we pray with the candidates for reception into the church. All of us have the responsibility of bringing the GOOD NEWS of Jesus to others. This process begins in the fall and continues through Pentecost. The highlight is the Holy Saturday celebration in which the candidates join the church and are Confirmed.
