The Saint Anne Catholic Community welcomes the Elect and the Candidates, 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. Our new Catholics have been gathering together to learn about the word of God, the teachings of the Church, the community, prayer and apostolic works of service for others. They have been touched deeply by the prayers and support of this community.
The following Elect received the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist):
The following Candidates, who had been baptized previously, received the Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist:
For the RCIA team members and sponsors, it has been a wonderful opportunity to journey with our new members, now called “Neophytes”. It has been a privilege to provide them with friendship, as well as guidance, throughout the process. Let us all welcome the Neophytes and join them in committing ourselves to the service of the Risen Lord!
