The coronavirus is not keeping our Elect and Candidates for Confirmation from preparing to receive the sacraments this year. The RCIA ministry is still going strong. To do our part for the common good we too are staying home.

Our RCIA community is physically apart but we are virtually together, and more importantly, together in spirit. Our candidates continue to meet at our regular time on Tuesday evenings with Joseph Nuzzi, our Director of Evangelization, and with the RCIA Ministry team. We follow the same format we would in class, with prayer, lecture, small group discussions and large group discussion.

On Sunday we continue to meet online for the Breaking Open of the Word where we study and discuss the Sunday scripture readings together. The ministry team and the candidates are committed to continuing their formation and preparation to celebrate the sacraments at Easter.

Please continue to pray for those preparing for Baptism, Confirmation and First Eucharist.
