RCIA Rite of Acceptance
Last Saturday was a special day for our Inquirers and Candidates as they experienced their first liturgical rite during mass. Journeying with us on our tenth RCIA journey since early July, they have been introduced to God and to the Church. Following God’s light, the Rite of Acceptance marks their first acceptance of the gospel. Moving forward our Inquirers who are now called catechumens will continue to be taught from the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
After the rite, having experienced the signing of the senses, some of our catechumens shared with Christopher our sponsor during our breaking of the word session that the experience was very meaningful and spirit filled.
Suresh our new catechumen shared that it was “an uplifting spiritual experience where my commitment to the faith grew stronger and I feel I just took another step closer to God.”

Nourish Your Soul & Reduce Hate for Others
“Instead of hating the people you think are warmakers, hate the appetites and disorder in your own soul, which are the causes of war. If you love peace, then hate injustice, hate tyranny, hate greed – but hate these things in yourself, not in another.”
– Thomas Merton
