Rite of Acceptance

Event details

  • September 25, 2022
  • 10:00 am

A group of inquirers (people interested in the Catholic Church) have been meeting with the RCIA team here in our parish. During this time, they have explored their own faith journeys and whether the Catholic Church is the place to continue that journey. They have prayed about it and have decided to take the next step. This step involves a liturgical rite: The Rite of Acceptance (for the unbaptized). They will “assemble publicly for the first time declaring their intention to the Church and the Church, in turn, accepts them as persons who intend to become its members.” (From the RCIA Paragraph 41) We, the parish, as the Church, have a part in this Rite.

We are asked to warmly welcome these catechumens into our faith family and to support them with our prayers.

This Rite will take place on Sunday, September 25, , 2022 at the10:00 a.m. Mass.

We ask you to prayerfully and joyously participate in this Rite. Please take the time after Mass to meet and greet these people. They are embarking on a wonderful adventure and you are a part of it. Please keep them in your prayers.
