News & Events

Scam emails/texts impacting our parish! Several ministry leaders, volunteers and even staff members have received emails and/or texts from email accounts that appear to be from Fr. Dan, requesting gift cards for cancer patients. The email or text looks authentic, as if it is being sent from Fr. Dan. Please know that this is a scam. Our priests will never ask anyone for gift cards, cash or other items of value via text or email.  Please check with the parish office if you think you have received a fraudulent email or text.  The best thing you can do is to ignore the email or text. Stay safe!

RCIA/RICA Sponsors Needed 
Thank you for considering being a Catholic friend/sponsor for our inquirers. 
Common FAQ's:
  1. You must be a confirmed Catholic. Confirmed teens are welcomed and needed.
  2. Your role is to share your faith journey, not teach.  That’s the job of the RCIA/RICA team.
  3. Classes meet Sundays 9-10:30 AM. We invite you to be a part of the classes as often as you can. (Sponsor Elaine R. said, “I learn something new myself every time I come.”)
  4. After November 18, we all go to the 11 AM Mass together. Inquirers are dismissed after the homily but sponsors can stay. 
Please email your YES and any questions to OR call Linda Spudic at 678-613-1327. You will be blessed in so many ways! RCIA Class of 2018
