Ours is a hands-on faith; we also learn by doing. Register as a parishioner now, or find out how you can get more involved by serving at Mass, in your local parish, and in our communities.

No matter how long you have been away, and no matter for what reason, He waits for you with open arms. Learn more in the links below, or at our seasonal Catholics Coming Home program, for baptised and confirmed Catholics who have been away for a time and aren’t sure where to start.

to attain the joys of so great a salvation,
and to celebrate them always
with solemn worship and glad rejoicing.

RCIA | Sponsors Needed

So far at Queen of Angels, we have eleven people on track to join the catechumenate in December, and they are in need of sponsors.

If you are an adult Catholic who has completed Confirmation, please prayerfully consider serving as a sponsor this year. 

Sponsors play an important role as friend and ally during the RCIA process. A sponsor might invite a catechumen to Mass, take them out to tea, invite them to Coffee Hour, introduce them to other parishioners, help to answer questions they might have (or refer them to the priest for more complicated topics), attend RCIA meetings with them, and generally extend the Love of Christ and His Church to them, wherever they are at.

Please contact the parish office if you feel a tug on your heart and would like to serve Christ and others in this way.

We would also like to spotlight two resources for hope and healing for women, men, and families hurt by abortion and it's effects in their lives: Silent No More and Project Rachel.
