RCIA

Candidates For Joining Our Faith

This year, St Mary-Holy Cross Parish community has two candidates who have been involved in the RCIA process since last fall. They are Gavin Cory and Jeremy Schuler. Both have been baptized in other Christian faiths. It is their plan, and our hope, that they will continue on until the Easter Vigil, at which time they will be brought into Full Communion with the Catholic Church. Please keep Gavin and Jeremy in your prayers.


On Sunday, March 10, at 10:00 Mass, they went through the Rite of Sending. That Rite sent them forth to attend the Rite of Election/Call to Continuing Conversion later that day at St. Ambrose Cathedral, celebrated by Bishop Pates. The Rite of Election/Call had catechumens (those not yet baptized) and candidates from throughout the Diocese of Des Moines present for their election and the call to continue their own faith journey.


Meetings:  Sundays following 10am Mass.
