    Becoming Catholic - Rite of Christian Initiation

    March 8, during the 9pm Liturgy

    Mission Church

    We will celebrate a Rite called a “Scrutiny.”  According to the Church’s Rites, “the scrutinies are meant to uncover, then heal all that is weak, defective, or sinful in the hearts of the elect; to bring out, then strengthen all that is upright, strong, and good.”   Please keep the Elect - Jon DeWald -  in your prayers as he make his final journey toward Initiation into the Catholic Church.  Because we are celebrating the Scrutiny, the readings for the 9pm on March 8 will be taken from Cycle A of the Lectionary.
