For the past few weeks, you have read about many Faith Formation and Education opportunities available at Saint Anne — here are a few more amazing ministries that are just waiting for your involvement!
RCIA – The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process to become Catholic for any adults who are not baptized Christians, Christians from another denomination who wish to become Catholic or individuals who were baptized Catholic but never received First Eucharist and Confirmation. This process takes time—from whenever an individual first makes an inquiry through their receiving the sacraments at Easter and a little beyond—but those who have gone through the process attest to the value of this meaningful time. Our weekly meetings are dedicated to prayer, fellowship, learning about the Catholic Christian faith and how to engage in our Saint Anne community.
Infant Baptism Preparation – For many, our journey with Christ and the Catholic community begins with baptism as infants or very young children. Saint Anne is here to help all parents choosing baptism for their children in understanding the joy of the sacrament celebrated and the responsibility that choice entails. At present, our preparation consists of one session prior to scheduling a baptism, but we are seeking to expand so as to be more hospitable and supportive of our families as they live into what we celebrate on the baptism day.
Women’s Faith Time – This series is, in short, about women reflecting on the spiritual life with other women. The committee offers two or three mornings of reflection each year that include Mass, light breakfast and a speaker’s presentation.
Men of Contemplation and Action (MAC) – For men who wish to find time to reflect on and discuss their life with other men in the parish, MAC is a great opportunity. Each group determines their own meeting frequency and schedule.
Please join us after all Masses on Saturday, June 1st and Sunday, June 2nd, in the Gathering Space, to learn more about our ministries and how you can participate!
