RCIA: Entering Lent

We are prepared to enter Lent and our class is learning what fasting and abstinence is all about. They study the sacraments in detail and discover the structure of the Church and they find ways to express their faith in daily life. Members of our class have been attending Mass and learning how this is the source and summit of Catholicism. They appreciate being able to join other parishioners in the communion line as they receive a blessing, and they look forward to Easter when they will join us in receiving the Eucharist.

2013-01-23_19-29-41_228    Sponsors have had the opportunity to attend a session on the responsibilities of being a sponsor. They understand the importance placed on their support and guidance of their charge during the rites and in assisting the neophytes enter the Catholic community.

The catechumens and candidates sign the Book of the Elect at the Rite of Sending on February 10 at 10 a.m. Mass. They will be meeting the Bishop in the Rite of Election, gathering with other candidates and catechumens from around the diocese.

Please continue to pray for our group as they make this journey within our Church.
