The Rite of Christian Initiation is designed for adults, who, after hearing the mystery of Christ proclaimed, consciously and freely seek, the living God and enter the way of faith and conversion as the Holy Spirit opens their hearts. By God's help they will be strengthened spiritually during their preparation and at the proper time will receive the sacraments fruitfully.
The parish takes the names of all who are being called to this journey of faith whenever they are ready. They are then assigned a sponsor who will journey with them until the process begins in the month of September. At different moments during their journey of faith the candidates are invited to go deeper into their relationship with the God who is calling them to conversion. Most enter into full union with the church during the Easter Vigil.
