“…the doors are opened wide for you to enter the Church”.

Please join in celebration as we support Dawn Herman, Michelle Lea and Jason Melquist as they continue their progression through the RCIA process. On Sunday, December 4, 2016 at the 8:30 AM mass we will celebrate the Rite Of Acceptance with them. This Rite concludes the initial phase of their “Journey Of Faith.” Dawn, Michelle and Jason will continue to pray, study and participate in regular discussion sessions as they work toward achieving full communion with the universal Catholic Church. The Rite of Acceptance marks a new beginning of enlightenment, prayer, study and welcome into the faith and into our parish. They will now be focusing on the Sacraments, Church History, and Catholic Life and Morality, always guided by the Scriptures. We will now explore with them the heart of Catholic doctrine and tradition. As fellow parishioners in faith, please accept your role by reaching out and welcoming our catechumen and candidates, their families and sponsors. Join together as we enter this new phase of inspiration, and prepare for the approaching Lenten season celebrating with our new sisters and brother in Christ Jesus’ name.

rcia“Let the risen Jesus enter your life, welcome him as a friend, with trust: he is life! If up till now you have kept him at a distance, step forward. He will receive you with open arms. If you have been indifferent, take a risk: you won’t be disappointed. If following him seems difficult, don’t be afraid, trust him, be confident that he is close to you, he is with you and he will give you the peace you are looking for and the strength to live as he would have you do.”

~Pope Francis I, Easter Vigil, Rome, March 30, 2013
