The Christian Initiation of Adults is a program that consists of a series of teaching and discussions by the lay people in the parish with the support of a pastoral leader and the parish priest, Fr Paul. It is marked with a series of Rites that the seekers (called Catechumens or Candidates) experience as we pray with them on their journey. Last Sunday we celebrated the Rite of Sending at our parish as we sent Meaghan, our RCIA Catechumen, to the Rite of Election with Bishop Peter at our Cathedral. Meaghan was joined with all the other Catechumens from our Diocese at this ceremony.
