Rite of Sending and Rite of Election – St. John Nepomucene
Angela Becker, Adam Lamers and Josh McGregor were officially “sent” after the 10 am Mass (Rite of Sending) on Sunday, March 6th to St. Francis Xavier Cathedral in Green Bay for Mass and a blessing by Bishop David Ricken (Rite of Election).
Angela, Adam and Josh have been taking part in the RCIA Program for several months with Deacons Dave Van Eperen and Bruce Corey in anticipation of becoming fully initiated into the Catholic faith at the Easter Vigil on Holy Saturday, April 16th. All are welcome and encouraged to participate in this beautiful liturgy.
Parishes from across our diocese, and throughout the world, annually welcome new Catholics through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). We pray for Angela, Adam and Josh, and all who desire to become Catholic. Those who have not yet been baptized are called Catechumens, and those who have been validly baptized in another Christian tradition and now seek full communion in the Catholic Church are called Candidates. Angela, Adam and Josh will receive the sacraments of First Eucharist and Confirmation. Josh, as a Catechumen, will also be baptized.
If you are interested in becoming Catholic, please contact the parish office at (920) 788-9061 for more information or click this link. Lessons begin Monday, September 12, 2022 and you will be welcomed into the Church on Holy Saturday which will be held on April 8, 2023. We look forward to journeying with you!
