ARE YOU OR IS SOMEONE YOU KNOW INTERESTED IN THE CATHOLIC FAITH? . . . St. Casimir Parish will begin a new journey in faith to share the richness of the Catholic Church and our parish family. This process is known as the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). We invite you to learn what the Church teaches, and be introduced to some of our parish members.
These sessions are also opportunities for you, and others that you may wish to invite, to ask questions that you may have about the Church. These gatherings are for inquirers and are open to adults who have not yet celebrated the sacrament of baptism, baptized Christians who wish to explore entering into full communion with the Catholic Church, baptized Catholics who have not celebrated first communion and/or confirmation, and Catholics who would like to update themselves about their faith.
If you are interested or have any questions, or know someone who may be, contact Jennifer Schmidt at 410-409-8175 or send an email to Jennifer at email@example.com.

THIS IS WHAT REALLY HAPPENS AT THE EUCHARIST (CATHOLIC MASS) . . . Take a few moments to view this video. In a very powerful way it expresses beautifully what it is we do at mass. It is the center of our faith. It is from the Eucharist that we draw our strength and it is the precious gift that Jesus has left us: His very presence. Please join us to adore and worship His presence in the Eucharist on the last Saturday of every month from 3:45 PM to 4:45 PM in the Church.
