Please join in on the celebration. All are Welcome!
Last Sunday we celebrated the Rite of Acceptance & Welcoming for our Catechumens and Candidates in the RCIA program. That fills us with joy in the Lord.
Through the process of becoming Catholic, we try to help people learn how to respond to the Lord every moment and every day of their lives. The process of being initiated into the Church is not so much about learning things as in a classroom but learning a way of life as an apprentice learns a discipline from a master and that master’s community.
By celebrating this rite, the person is officially and publicly declaring his or her intention to enter into a formal relationship with the Church, learning its ways and participating in its lifestyle.
This rite makes the person an official member of the Church as one who is preparing to be baptized. Therefore, the person is given an official title and role to play in the Church, that of “catechumen” which means “one in whom the Word of God echoes.”
Please continue to pray for each one of our catechumens and candidates as they now enter a period of deeper formation in the RCIA process.
We are a Catholic community of intentional disciples in love with Jesus, inviting everyone to experience the joy of the Gospel. We commit to worship, to grow, to serve, to connect, and to give.
