Saint Pascal Parish Family-Centered Catechesis
Religious Education Program
Now Enrolling for the Fall
If you are looking for ways for your family to explore our Catholic faith, opportunities to share your faith with your children, chances for your family to share in engaging and creative lessons about the Church and what we believe, then join us this year in our Family Centered Catechesis. The theme of this year's session is "Jesus Christ: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow."
This program is for all families with children in Kindergarten through eighth grade. Families gather for monthly sessions either on a Monday evening or a Saturday morning and then complete lessons at home that reinforce the learning that took place at the family session.

Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA)
The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the process offered for adults to become full members of the Catholic Church. Those who never were baptized, were baptized in another Christian tradition, or who were baptized Catholic but who have not received First Communion or Confirmation are invited to join us for RCIA so that you may fully enter the Catholic Church. RCIA meets on Sunday mornings from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM. RCIA participants will receive the sacraments and become full members of the Church at the Easter Vigil on April 21, 2019. Please contact the parish office for more information and/or register for the RCIA program. Click here for additional information on RCIA.
Eucharistic Adoration - Thursdays
Each Thursday from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM, Saint Pascal hosts the place for quiet reflection - Eucharistic Adoration in Church. The purpose of Eucharistic Adoration is to give every Catholic an opportunity to spend time with our Eucharistic Lord present in the Blessed Sacrament. Everyone is welcome and invited to spend some time on Thursdays for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, an hour or more if so desired. It calms one’s soul, brings peace to one’s heart and deepens one’s relationship with the Lord. Making time with Jesus may be the gift you can give yourself.
ParishSoft - Connecting People and the Church
Our parish families now have an opportunity to update personal information on our database ParishSoft. Along with this opportunity, families will also be able to view their contributions, print tax letters (when they become available, saving the parish postage during tax season!). Families may choose to upload pictures too. All additions or changes are reviewed and approved by parish staff members.
Along with the above features, ministers (Lectors, Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion, Altar Servers and Ushers) can communicate the dates they are available to serve, when they will be out of town, and view their schedule or their children’s schedules.
