Holy Redeemer Catholic Church is the sponsoring parish for Catholic Campus Ministries at Southwest Minnesota State University. Students who attend SMSU, who are seeking to join the Catholic Church, or receive the Sacrament of Confirmation, are included in the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) through our parish. Spearheaded by Deacon Ken Noyes, and his bride, Jan, catechumens will participate in ten small group sessions, as well as the rites of the Church as they prepare to become full, active members of the Catholic Church.
This year, we have one of our students participating. Ashley was born and baptized in the Catholic faith, but hasn't been Confirmed. We are excited to walk in faith with her as she takes these next steps in faith. Please pray for her, and for all the students on campus who are called to deepen their relationship with the Lord through the RCIA process.
