PREPARING FOR THE JOURNEY
Welcome New Catholics
The Catechumenate is a process for adults and children over the age of seven who are seeking to be baptized into the Roman Catholic Church. These people would prepare to receive the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. As well, Christians baptized into other denominations can seek to receive the Sacraments of Initiation through this process. Each person is matched with a sponsor from the parish who befriends and journeys with the candidate.
This process can be as unique as each individual involved. The main purpose is to assist prospective Catholics in their journey to become active members of the church community through discussions of the teachings of the Church, prayer, reflection, study of scripture, and participation with the community in various ministry and social activities.
The journey includes:
CATECHUMENS Those of you who wish to celebrate the sacraments of Baptism, Eucharist, and Confirmation.
CANDIDATES Those of you who wish to celebrate one or more sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist and/or Confirmation.
Inquiry sessions for RCIA will begin Sunday, September 23, 2012 at the 9:00am Liturgy.
