Catholic Watchmen

The Catholic Watchmen gather monthly for food, fellowship and formation. They focus on becoming better fathers and husbands so as to better serve their families and the community.


RCIA is the process by which adult men and women are initiated into the Catholic Church through the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation. Baptized adults also are welcome to complete initiation sacraments. Participants receive Catechetical instruction, Scripture reflection, faith sharing, prayer, and liturgical rites aimed at helping participants be strengthened spiritually and at the proper time receive the sacraments fruitfully. Sessions meet weekly from mid-September until after Easter on Thursday evenings from 7:00 pm-9:00 pm in room 206.  Please contact Jill Fink at with questions.
