Are you looking for a Church Family to call home?
In 2003, 187 men, women and children were fully initiated into the Roman Catholic Church throughout the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown. Let us help you to begin a new (or renewed) relationship with God our loving Father, with Jesus Christ our Savior and the loving Holy Spirit as part of our Catholic family of believers.
The Office of Christian Initiation can link you with a parish in the diocese that will welcome you into the Catholic Church through the Christian Initiation Process.
For more information of the Rite of Christian Initiation contact Jeanne Thompson at 814-695-5579.
