LIVE THE LITURGY : Inspiration for the Week
Secular problems require savvy secular solutions. We are trained to solve problems, be successful and productive, and find our way through all that life presents to us. Corporations value those who can decipher the best avenue to take in order to resolve an issue. How do you train and renew your mind? Facts, figures, scientific tools, analytical processes, best practices, and models of varying kinds are at our disposal. If we don’t know the full and proper course of action, we can easily find it. But there is a knowledge that goes far beyond all these things that makes a direct claim on the essence of our being. It satisfies a deeper thirst and hunger that keeps us restless until it is satisfied. Our minds, hearts, and souls cannot only be nurtured purely by secular and temporal things. We must seek the enlightenment that comes from God. This allows us to see the value of suffering in order to achieve a greater good and the losing of our very self in the service of something greater. Faith only makes sense if it can bring us to this heightened awareness.

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS (RCIA)

An Invitation That Never Ends
  • Have you been worshiping with us, but never officially taken the step to become Catholic?
  • Have you been away from the Church, and have now returned, but want to know more?
  • Have you been a Catholic all your life, but never celebrated all the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, Eucharist)?
  • Have you joined us from a different background and would like to find out more about the Catholic Church?

If you (“or someone you know”) answers YES to any of these questions, you are invited to find out more through the process called the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). It is a journey that begins with your questions. There is no obligation to join us as you discover more about your Catholic faith. The decision is ultimately yours to discern if this is to be your spiritual home. The invitation is always open: RSVP when you are ready! We look forward to welcoming you.

RITO DE INICIACIÓN CRISTIANA PARA ADULTOS (RICA)

Una invitación que nunca termina
  • ¿Ha estado adorando a Dios con nosotros, pero nunca ha dado oficialmente el paso para convertirse en católico?
  • ¿Ha estado lejos de la Iglesia y ahora ha regresado, pero quiere saber más?
  • ¿Ha sido católico toda su vida, pero nunca celebró todos los sacramentos de iniciación (bautismo, confirmación, eucaristía)?
  • ¿Se ha unido a nosotros con una formación religiosa diferente y le gustaría saber más sobre la Iglesia Católica?

Si usted (“o alguien que conoce”) responde SÍ a cualquiera de estas preguntas, está invitado a obtener más información a través del proceso llamado Rito de Iniciación Cristiana para Adultos (RICA). Es un viaje que comienza con tus preguntas. No hay obligación al unirse a nosotros para descubrir más sobre la fe católica. En última instancia, la decisión es suya para discernir si este es su hogar espiritual. La invitación siempre está abierta: ¡confirme su asistencia cuando esté listo! Esperamos darle la bienvenida.
