With the onset of August comes the time to prepare for the resurgence of the programs that had a summer hiatus. RCIA is one of these programs, the acronym for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. The RCIA is a process by which those who were never baptized or those Christians who are part of another denomination become members of the Catholic faith. The entire process; indeed, each facet of the process, involves the Catholic Community as a means of strengthening those inquiring into the Catholic Church so as to provide the moral and spiritual support they need to complete their faith journey.
Many of you have seen the rituals performed during the Lenten Season and the Sacraments of Initiation conferred during the Easter Vigil. However, the process begins with instructions which begin around Labor Day in a group setting facilitated by a team which forms a small community that lends support for the person inquiring into the Catholic Faith.
Do you know someone who is interested in becoming Catholic?
If so, call Fr. Louis at (440) 526-1177 ext. 220. You’ll be glad you did.
Over the past several months, people have been borrowing pyxes to bring Holy Communion to their loved ones. I have no pyxes left to loan because they are all out. Some of these are expensive and need to be brought back to church so that we have our reserve when things get back to normal. Please look around your homes if you have borrowed a pyx and return it as soon as you can. I will give no one a pyx until all are returned. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
