Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, “What are you looking for?”

They said to him, “Teacher, where are you staying?” 

He said to them, “Come, and you will see.”

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

This is a process of reflection, prayer, instruction, discernment, and formation for those who wish to join the Catholic Church. Those who were baptized in another faith tradition or baptized Catholics who did not complete sacramental initiation (First Communion and/or Confirmation) as children are also welcomed in the RCIA program. Generally, instruction begins in September and concludes with the celebration of the sacraments at the beautiful Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday.

For more information, please contact Father Flanagan at the Parish Office.

Prayer to the Virgin Mary for Protection
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign of salvation and hope. We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick. At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith. You, Our Lady of New York, know what we need. We are certain that you will provide, so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee, joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial. Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us: He who took our sufferings upon Himself, and bore our sorrows to bring us, through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God. Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test – and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
