The Saint Anne Catholic Community welcomes the neophytes, who participated in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and were received into full Communion with the Church at the beautiful Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday. Let us all welcome the Neophytes and join them in committing ourselves to the service of the Risen Lord!
Fr. Bernie and RCIA Director Michael Beard recognizing the Candidates for Confirmation, Greg Banks and Heather Tomei, with their sponsors Rob Kemp and Connie Ennessy.
For the RCIA team members and sponsors, it has been a wonderful opportunity to journey with our new Neophytes. It has been a privilege to provide them with friendship, as well as guidance, throughout the process.
We would also like to thank Julie Jezierski, the Young Marrieds Group and the rest of the RCIA Hospitality Team, many of whom are past participants in RCIA at Saint Anne, for their help with reception following the Easter Vigil.
Finally, we would like to thank everyone who volunteered to serve or brought a dish to share at the celebration following the Easter Vigil. It was inspiring to see our community come together to greet our new members.
“Welcome one another, then, as Christ welcomed you,
for the glory of God.”
RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS
The Saint Anne Catholic Community welcomes those who may have an interest in developing a relationship with Jesus Christ through the Catholic Church. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which we bring adults into the Church through Baptism, 1st Eucharist, and Confirmation. We invite you to consider joining other adults on their journey of spiritual formation in this engaging, dynamic, respectful and spiritual process. If you would like to know more, please contact Michael Beard at 847.620.3070 or firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no better time than the Easter Season to explore the Catholic faith!
