We state on our Parish Newssheet – “The love of CHRIST urges us on” – and at no better time do we see this in our Church than though the journey of RCIA. As part of God’s Church we are entering into the time of year where we invite those in our community who may be pondering about the Catholic Faith and wondering how to answer God’s invitation to them to enter into a relationship with Jesus and with our Church. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is our Catholic response to those wishing to know more about being a Catholic. Soon, that journey will begin. If you, or if you know of someone, has some questions about RCIA, ask them to ring me, Sandy Starbuck – 9401 6312.
