For those of us who form part of the RCIA team or have the blessing to serve as a sponsor, it is a beautiful experience witnessing how God has a very special way of calling His sons and daughters to grow closer to Him. It is always special to see how the Lord knocks on their door in so many different ways, and how they willingly answer to Him.
A couple of weeks ago we kicked off this year’s RCIA program with a retreat where we reflected on the gift of Faith. A gift that God gives to us that requires an answer to Him. And we can truly see how this is happening in their lives now. This Sunday during the 9am Mass we celebrated the Rite of Welcoming and Acceptance for catechumens and candidates who have signed up in the RCIA program with the desire to learn more about the Catholic faith and grow closer to Jesus. This rite is important for us, as a community, to welcome them as they officially start this journey to prepare themselves to, with the grace of God, join the Catholic faith during the Easter Vigil.
As they start this year of spiritual preparation, please keep in your prayers our catechumens who are seeking the gift of Baptism and our candidates who desire their full reception into the Catholic faith. They are relying on your prayer support!BACK TO LIST
