Dear St Philip the Apostle Family and Friends,
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) started on Nov. 5 at the church rectory from 7-8:30 PM. and will be held Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 PM through May.
Please share this information with someone you think might be interested in coming to see what RCIA is all about. Please pray for all those people who will be joining us on this journey.
St. Philip the Apostle Parish would like to cordially invite you (or someone you would like to extend the invite to) to come and learn more about the Catholic Faith.
We will be offering instructional classes on the faith, worship, and life of the Catholic Church.
Our classes will be held in the church rectory and are open to anyone - Catholics or non-Catholics.
Who is in the R.C.I.A.?
* Un-baptized adults
* Adults baptized in non-Trinitarian formula
* Adults baptized as Catholic, but lack First Holy Communion and Confirmation
* Adults baptized & confirmed infants in the Catholic Church, but lack First Holy Communion
* Adults baptized in other Christian Churches, in the Trinitarian formula w/water
Please ask us about RCIC (Rite of Christian Initiation for Children) for children and youth older than 7 years old.
What Will the RCIA Class Cover?
“And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.” (Acts of the Apostles 2:42)
As in the early Christian communities, in our RCIA classes, we will look at the four main pillars on which the life of faith rests. First, we will cover “the apostles’ teaching,” that is, the Creed, which contains in it all the essential pieces of the Catholic faith. Next, we will consider the 7 Sacraments and especially “the breaking of bread” which is an ancient term for the sacrament of the Eucharist. Also, we will look at God’sCommandments, which summarize the Moral Teachings of the Church. Finally, we will learn about “the prayers” of the Church and how one enters into Prayer.
Please let me or Fr Ted know if you have any questions, concerns or would like more info on RCIA.
We hope you or someone you know can join us!
May the peace of Christ be with you and your family!
CHILDREN’S LITURGY OF THE WORD is a celebration of the Liturgy of the Word in a manner so young children (ages 4 until reception of First Holy Communion) come away with a better understaning of the Sunday readings and how they apply to their lives. We are looking for volunteers to assist with this ministry which will be offered once a month at the 9:00 a.m. Mass. If you are interested in helping, please contact Marlen Coles at email@example.com or leave a message at the rectory. T raining will be provided.
RCIA-is the “Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults”-
a process for adults to learn more about being Catholic or to complete
preparation for the Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Eucharist, or
Confirmation. RCIA began in October for adults and for children (RCIC). Please call the rectory at (301) 423-4244 and speak with Dolores Steinhilber or speak with Father Hegnauer after Mass.
