Please join the participants in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) for the celebration of the greatest feast of our Church year, Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday, April 3, 2021, at 8:00pm.
For the Elect and the Candidates, this will be the culmination of their learning through the RCIA about the word of God, the teachings of the Church, the community, prayer and apostolic works of service for others. The Elect are now ready to receive the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist), and the Candidates are now ready to be received into full Communion with the Catholic Church.
For the Saint Anne Community, it has been a wonderful opportunity to journey with them, opening us to experiencing Lent at its fullest, growing in our faith, and deepening our conversion. We look forward with anticipation to the beautiful Easter Vigil Mass on Holy Saturday during which we join the Elect and the Candidates in renewing our commitment in faith to the service of the Risen Lord.

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
