Rite of Acceptance Next Weekend
January 14 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am
RITE OF ACCEPTANCE NEXT WEEKEND During the last several months, we’ve been blessed with a very enthusiastic group of people who have been coming together to find out more about the Catholic Faith. This initial period of Inquiry is coming to a completion and the new phase of preparation, The period of Evangelization and PreCatehucmenate is about to begin. The first step in this period is the Rite of Acceptance which takes place next Sunday, January 14th, at the 8:00 a.m. Mass at St. Mary’s at which time the candidates and catechumens are officially and publicly accepted by the Church to continue their faith journey in anticipation of receiving the Sacraments of Initiation at the Easter Vigil. All of us in the Good Shepherd Catholic Parish community-atlarge make an important commitment as well, a commitment to encourage and support and pray for those who are seeking to become members of our Catholic faith community.
