Taize Prayer Service
Wednesday, April 24th  7pm
Catholic Student Center
Instead of the normal Ignite adoration service, we will have a Taize prayer service!
What is Taizé prayer?  The simple and beautiful chant music of Taizé monastery in France is dedicated to the renewal of spirits and the healing of our planet. The repetitive nature of the chanted prayer can promote a kind of inner unity of the person, allowing the spirit to be more open and more attentive to what is essential.  Silence is a fundamental part of the Taizé service.

Thursday, April,25th 7-8:30PM

RCIA is a process of study, exploration, faith-sharing, and faith formation with specific liturgical rites for seekers and inquirers. The language used in the RCIA process is that of the early Church formation programs. Catechumens are those people who are seeking full initiation into the Catholic Church through all of the Sacraments of Initiation - Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation. Candidates are people who have been baptized in a Christian tradition but are seeking initiation into the Catholic Church through Eucharist and Confirmation.
