St Johns Parish Waterford - Rite of Acceptance into Catechumenate

Rite of Acceptance into Catechumenate

 

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

This rite is for adults wishing to become members of the Catholic Church. There are three parishioners who attend Mass regularly in our parish and who are not yet baptized. To date they have been at the ‘enquiring’ stage of the conversion process. They are Justice Johnson and his wife Martina and Natan Salvatore.

They now feel ready to take the next step of formal preparation for baptism which is being expressed today at our 12 noon Mass when Justice and Martina will be formally accepted into the Catechumenate through the Rite of Acceptance into the Catechumenate. Nathan will be received at a later stage. The journey towards full membership of the Church will be completed at the Easter Vigil 2012. We ask you to welcome them and pray for them.
