It’s been nearly 30 years since the Catholic Church first gave us a “new” way of initiating people into the Catholic Christian community. And it’s been over 10 years since the bishops of the United States mandated that this new way of initiating adults and older children be implemented in the parishes of the United States. This new way of initiating Catholics is called the RCIA—Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

On March 9th, our RCIA group gathered at the Cathedral of St. Jude where Bishop Lynch formally announced our unbaptized adults as now beloning to the “Elect”.  Please continue to pray for these adults and their families as they get ready to be baptized at our Easter Vigil Mass.  Also included were adults who are seeking Confirmation and First Communion. Our parish is blessed by them!
