The mission of this group is to be an available resource to those with interests or questions about Catholicism. The members of this group have convereted to Catholicism via the "Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults," or RCIA. Our intention is to provide others with our personal experiences of conversion in order to convey greater understanding of the Catholic faith. If you are feeling the call to conversion and would like to become Catholic, you've come to the right place! You've probably got questions. We're all about providing answers! Curious is not involved in the conversion process. Instead, we are a casual resource for any non-Catholics or non-Christians who have questions...great or small. Please email us at email@example.com with any questions you may have.
Divorced and Separated Support Group If you are enduring the acute pain and profound sense of loss associated with divorce or separation, you need not go through this alone! You will find support, comfort and healing by joining the Divorced & Separated Support Group that is sponsored by several North Hills parishes including Sts. John and Paul.
Our group meets on Monday evenings from 7:00-8:45 PM. We are a DivorceCare group and, during our 13 week program cycle, we will explore all aspects of divorce and will help you to begin the process of healing. The DivorceCare program is based on solid Christian teachings and Biblical principles and incorporates the knowledge and experience of experts in this area. And, most importantly, participants are brought together through the love of Christ to support one another through these difficult times.
Pre-registration is not required. If you have questions or would like to find out where the group is currently meeting, please call or email Ralph Joy (firstname.lastname@example.org; 412-741-5456).
Young Adult Ministry SS John & Paul Parish is eager to support the development of Young Adult Ministry to meet the special needs of singles and married people ages 18 to 40. Many of our current programs, such as our Outreach programs, Parent/Family Programs, and Adult Faith Formation programs will be of interest to young adults. At this time we are also looking for Young Adult Catholics who are interested in working with other local parishes to form a Young Adults Singles ministry that might feature Bible Studies, Social Events, and Senior Connection work teams for singles only. If you would like to help, call Danielle at Ext. 238. Also, check out the Young Adult Ministry information available from the Diocese at http://www.diopitt.org/youngadults.
