R.C.I.A. is our process for becoming Catholic. At the 10:30 Mass on Sunday, we welcomed the R.C.I.A catechumens (adults preparing for baptism) and candidates (baptized adults preparing to enter the Catholic Church) into our community. They have been attending classes for quite some time, but this is the first time they attended Mass together and stated their intentions before the community.
Please keep the group in your prayers as they continue to listen for and respond to God’s call. God willing, they will receive the sacraments of initiation this Easter.
