AN ONGOING JOURNEY – On Sunday, March 10, 2019, candidates and catechumen from our parish joined with hundreds of others at Holy Name Cathedral for the Rite of Election. Those preparing to enter the Catholic during the Easter Vigil were called forth during the rite and the bishop prayed over them. It was a great celebration and it was good to see so many catechumen and candidates who were joyful and enthusiastic to be received into the Catholic faith. In your kindness, please keep in your prayers all those who have journeyed through the RCIA process since last September and who will either enter the Catholic Church or complete their Sacraments of Initiation at the Easter Vigil. In particular, please remember Nicole Garcia, Madeline Lavin, Sara Matthews, Shawn Leonard, Jesenia Camacho Watts, and Lidia Muro. Please remember the Teen RCIA–Confirmation candidates who will be confirmed at the Easter Vigil as well: Martin Calkins, Claudia Galicia, David Galicia, Suzanne Lundin, Orquidea Mancilla, Karime Romero, and Melany Terraza. We would like to thank Ruthanne Swiatkowski, Deacon John Walters, Karen Morreti, and Jackie Schweitzer who have taught and accompanied them on their journey.
