Today we welcomed Canon Paul Cummins our Diocesan Administrator and those who have been journeying through the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.
Since the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults was restored to the Church in 1972 after the Second Vatican Council, our parishes have endeavoured to implement it and we have witnessed the entry of many people into the Church through Baptism, and the reception of many others into full communion with the Church. The RCIA is the sacramental process established by the Church for the initiation of adults. The beautiful rituals of this process, properly celebrated in the midst of our parish communities, call everyone in the parish to conversion and renewal, not just those seeking initiation. There are diverse roles involved in the process and the whole Catholic community is asked to participate.
As we those who have been preparing take this important step, they are gathering at the Cathedral, the Mother Church and will be enrolled into the Book of Elect. Their journey continues through to the Easter Vigil when they will be admitted into full communion with the church. We keep those who have been preparing for this entry into the church in our prayers and are delighted to welcome our visitors today at 3pm. All are welcome.
