St. John Fisher Roman Catholic Church

On Saturday, December 1, 2012 at the 4:00PM vigil mass, we celebrate the Rite of Acceptance with "candidate" Jennifer Cavanna. Through the blessings given to her during this ceremony we join together to give thanks and to welcome Jennifer into the next phase of her "Journey of Faith."

Jennifer has participated in regular "Inquiry" sessions during which she has been introduced to basic Catholic spiritual truths, traditions, rituals and general knowledge of the Church. She now begings the "Catechumenate Phase" of "Period of Enlightenment" as she works towards achieving full communion with our universal Catholic Community.

The Rite of Acceptance ceremony marks a new beginning of enlightenment for her. Together with many volunteers from our parish, Jennifer will now focus on the heart of Catholic doctrine; the Sacraments, Church History, and Christian Life, always guided by Scripture and the Holy Spirit.

The RCIA process is a "parish-wide" undertaking and YOU are asked to accept your role by reaching out and welcoming our candidate and by participating where possible in Jennifer's training. So, let us join together as we enter this wonderful Advent season and celebrate the beauty of our faith with our sister in union with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

NOTE: Anyone, adult or teen, wishing to participate in any of the various discussion sessions with our candidate, you are more than welcome. This is a tremendous opportunity to fulfill your Confirmation vow and take up the staff of evangelization. Contact Jim Castellani at This email address is being protected from spambots.

God bless you.
