RCIA Rite of Welcome 2014-15 class

Rite of Welcome: December 6, 2014

At the 5 p.m. Mass on the Second Sunday of Advent, with Fr. Joseph Cunningham presiding, our parish had a special reason to Rejoice as we welcomed those who will receive the sacraments of initiation, Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter 2015 Vigil. The RCIA Class of 2014-15 took part in what is formally called the Rite of Acceptance into the Order of Catechumens. Fr. Cunningham invited our parish community to greet these new candidates as they knocked on the doors of the church. They were then signed with the cross of Christ and affirmed their intention to live under Christ’s cross. Photos courtesy Yorke Mizelle.
