RCIA begins in a couple of weeks- 9/28. Contact the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Joseph Parish office if you are interested in learning more about the process.
Hello everyone, it’s that time of year. We will soon starting holding the Wednesday night RCIA sessions. The first session begins late September. More details to follow.
Friendly reminder- this week’s RCIA session is cancelled. See you next Wednesday (5/11). Have a blessed week!
Happy Easter Everyone! Congratulations to our Brothers And Sisters who received their Sacraments of Initiation at St. Leo and the Cathedral during the Vigil Mass last night. May you walk with the Light of Christ!
Lent is going by very quickly. This Sunday is the last Scrutiny. After that, the following Sunday (4/10) is Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday marks when Jesus returns to Jerusalem and is greeted with much enthusiasm. Palm Sunday is the start of Holy Week, which concludes with Easter Sunday.
Congratulations to our Elect for completing the First Scrutiny. The remaining two Scrutinies will take place over the next two Sundays. Our 3 participants were lucky to have Bishop Cantù presiding over today’s Mass and Scrutiny Rites. We are short of 1 month before Easter. Please continue to stick to your Lenten goals and remember the Cathedral Parish is praying for you.
We will no longer be holding Zoom sessions for our meetings. All participants are expected to attend in person. Thanks!
We will be praying the Stations of the Cross in the Cathedral during the Wednesday evening session. The prayer will be led by the Team members.
Reminder for Sunday March 20, 2022. This upcoming Sunday will be the first of three scrutinies. For those preparing to received the Sacrament of Baptism please bring your sponsor to the 8:30a mass for the next three Sundays (3/20, 3/27 & 4/3). For all RCIA participants Dismissal will still continue after the Homily. Please arrive early for the 8:30a Sunday Mass.
We will not be meeting in person this week. Wednesday night session will be via Zoom. The title of this week’s discussion is “Yes to Jesus/Scrutinies.” You should have already received the Zoom link from Nidia.
