BECOMING A CATHOLIC CHRISTIAN

Submitted by stfxweb on Sat, 08/18/2018 - 15:49
  • Do you know a neighbor or friend who has expressed a desire to learn more about the Catholic faith and perhaps, to become part of our community?
  • Has your spouse has been thinking about becoming a Catholic and does not know how to proceed?
  • Have you been explaining your faith to someone?

If the answer to any of the above questions is "Yes", then you should know about the RCIA - the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.

Our best wishes and prayers go out to all of the moms of  our parish. We will remember you at our Masses this week and ask God to continue to bless you with wisdom and love. May your special place in the lives of our families and of our children be a source of joy and fulfillment for all of you and may Our Lord strengthen you in your work of building up our Christian family.


We ask God as well to protect and embrace the moms whose lives of dedication and holiness have given their adult children a firm and loving foundation in life.

RITE OF ACCEPTANCE AND WELCOME

Submitted by stfxweb on Thu, 01/18/2018 - 13:17

This weekend we celebrate the Rite of Acceptance and Welcome for this year's candidates in the RCIA Process who are preparing to receive the Sacraments of Initiation at the Easter Vigil. The parish claims these candidates by signing them with the sign of the Cross and presenting them with the Holy Bible, the foundation of the faith in which they wish to grow.

Preparing for full initiation through Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist are Gina Ekwealor and Clement Salomon.
