RCIA 2016-2017

Second Scrutiny
On March 26th, 2017 at the 11:30 AM Mass we joined our Elect and Candidates in hearing the story of Jesus healing the man born blind. Together we welcome the light of Christ to shine on our spiritual blindness and pray for the courage to live as children of light. Let us pray that God may dispel darkness and be the light that shines in our hearts of our elect and candidates.

Lenten Retreat 2017
As part of their preparation for the sacraments the RCIA Elect and Candidates attended a regional “Day of Prayerful Reflection for the Second Scrutiny: Man Born Blind” with Fr. Christopher Bazyouros on Saturday, March 25. Here are a few pictures of the same:

First Scrutiny
On March 19th, 2017 at the 11:30 AM Mass we joined our Elect and Candidates in hearing the story of Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman at the well. Together we will identify our thirst for living water, name what prevents us from receiving this water, and finally come to know Jesus as the fountain of Living Water. Please pray that like the woman of Samaria, our Elect and Candidates may review their lives before Christ and acknowledge their sins.

Rite of Election

On March 5th, 2017 The Catechumens and Candidates along with their Sponsors went to the Cathedral to attend the Rite of Election. The joy on their faces seeing is visible in their smiles. They are now the Elect of GOD who are soon going to be fully initiated into the Church. They will be initiated into the Church at the Easter Vigil, on April 15th, 2017.
