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

May is National Blood Pressure Month. High blood pressure affects one in three Americans β€” and it’s the third leading cause of death in the U.S. This May, celebrate National Blood Pressure Month by raising your awareness with the power of information. Then, use that knowledge to fight unseen, potential risks.

Guidelines for blood pressure have changed in recent years. Around 120 over 80 is now considered the range for normal blood pressure. Anything higher than that means you should try to lower it through some simple lifestyle changes like diet and exercise.

Know your numbers and have them checked regularly. β€œFor wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will fill you with joy.” Proverbs 2:10.

Our Parish Nurses offer regular monitoring. Utilize them. If your numbers start inching up, visit your doctor.
