RCIA—Catechumens, Candidates and Sponsors Gather at Cathedral

On Sunday, March 10th, our RCIA Catechumens, Candidates and their sponsors were presented to Bishop Deshotel in the Rite of Election. This liturgy takes place each year on the First Sunday of Lent in every Diocese. Those who have been discerning entrance into the Catholic faith through prayer and study in their local parishes are welcomed and affirmed by the Diocesan Bishop so that they may persevere and remain encouraged as they journey towards the Easter Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist. Let us continue to prayerfully support the eight men and women from St. Peter’s parish. May they always feel a true sense of welcome in our parish community.

If you are aware of any family members, neighbors, co-workers or friends who are not Catholic and are desiring to know more about Catholicism, please refer them to Fr. Blanda, one of our Deacons or our RCIA Director (Mary Wyble) to find out more about our parish’s RCIA program and the process to enter into the Catholic Church.

Christian Formation—A Broader View

Many people think of Christian Formation as a religious education program for children and youth. But it’s more than that. Christian Formation is a lifelong process aimed at personal conversion and growth in faith. So please take advantage of the adult programs that our parish offers. The website shows the many aspects of Christian Formation here at St. Peter Parish. We will also be highlighting these opportunities in the coming weeks.
