RCIA is a formal process within the Church which allows non-Catholic adults to learn more about the Faith. While it is an educational program, the ultimate goal, if the candidate so chooses, is to be welcomed into the Catholic Faith by reception of the Sacrament of Baptism/Confirmation, which always occurs on Holy Saturday. The RCIA program usually begins in October/November and concludes with the Rite of Acceptance on Holy Saturday. Classes are held weekly and meet at an agreed time convenient for both the instructors and candidates. Assigned readings and class discussion are part of the normal weekly meetings. Any non-Catholic with an interest in learning more about the RCIA process should talk to one of the priests or deacons.

 

Parish Nurse Corner

When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.” ~Proverbs 3:24

Sleep is essential for your well-being. It is necessary for the body to recharge its batteries, heal its wounds, and regroup for another day. We all need a slightly different amount of sleep, but we all need good quality rest. This means deep, uninterrupted sleep of at least 6 hours for adults, but preferably 8, and even more for children and teenagers. Without the right amount of sleep, we become short-tempered, quick to anger, and make poor decisions. Remember to say a bedtime prayer to set the stage for a long and deep sleep.

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” ~Matthew 11:28.
