Welcome to

Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church

in Ramona, CA


Maybe you grew up Catholic.
Maybe you think of yourself as Catholic.
Maybe you haven’t been to church in a while.
Or, you are worried that you won’t be welcomed here.
And maybe it feels awkward and scary to take that first step.
Question. Doubts. Yearning, but not sure for what.

We get it. We’ve been there. Now we are here.
Maybe God is calling you, too. Just as you are!

The Walk For Life

The Walk For Life on Saturday, April 14th is a simple way to declare “Choose Life, Life Makes the Difference” on behalf of unborn children. Anyone can take part: either individually, as a family or with friends. The 2 ½ mile event takes just an hour out of the day, and the funds raised go directly to serving women in crisis, empowering them with free services to help them choose life. To get involved, just take a sponsor sheet (or use one online), ask a few friends and family members to be sponsors, and turn in the funds and sponsor sheet at the Walk. Receive a Walk For Life 2018 t-shirt for raising $150. Sponsor sheets and more information are available at www.FriendsOfRPCC.org
