RCIA Happenings


Rite of Sending

The Community of Our Mother of Good Counsel will celebrate at the 9:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, February 11 the “Rite of Sending” our parish’s three candidates for the Sacraments of Initiation at our Easter Vigil this year. Two adults, Camille Kautzmann and Moira Smith, together with a young 7th grade student in our Religious Education Program, Eva Taberski, will celebrate with other catechumens from the Montgomery County and Bucks County Vicariates the Rite of Election with Archbishop Charles Chaput on Saturday, February 17 at 3:00 p.m. This Rite is celebrated on the first weekend of Lent which ushers our catechumens into the final period of preparation (Lent) for their reception into the Church at the Easter Vigil.

As a parish community, we will journey with them throughout Lent which calls each
of us into this period of purification and enlightenment as we prepare to celebrate the Easter mysteries enhanced by their presence among us. Let us keep each of these “elect” in our thoughts and prayers during this holy season of 40 days.
