Orientation for Christian Initiation Teams:  If your parish has individuals who are new to the parish team contact the Office of Faith Formation. Either Sister Angelica or Linda Porter will be willing to schedule a time to meet with them and to orient them to the process. It is most advantageous if this is done at the parish with the priests, and deacons if possible. The orientation takes about 3 hours and will take the place of the two day sessions we have provided the last few years. We look forward to being with you as you continue to implement this important ministry in your community. To schedule an orientation contact or or call the office at 903-266-2146.  Thank you.
