RCIA NEWS - Rite of Welcoming

by Gesu Parish Toledo on 12/01/17

Last Sunday, at the 9 am Mass our inquirers are gathering to celebrate the Rite of Welcoming.  At this Mass they will be welcomed formally into the church and publically declare their intentions to continue their journey toward full initiation into the Catholic Church.  Donald Balthaser, Amy Dziad and Keri Storer will then be candidates for Full Communion with the Catholic Church and soon will complete their initiation by receiving the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist.  We also have seven others who will complete their sacraments of Initiation by receiving the sacrament of Confirmation at the East Vigil.

After Mass they will celebrate with family, friends and sponsors.  Please keep them in your prayers and pray for their continuing conversion.

Almighty God, source of all creation, look upon these servants as they deepen their understanding of the Gospel.  Grant that they may come to know and love you and always heed your will with receptive minds and generous hearts.  Teach them through this time of preparation and enfold them within your Church, so that they may share your holy mysteries both on earth and in heaven.  We ask this through Christ our Lord.  Amen
