COVID-19 Restrictions Coming to an End
Effective March 15, 2022
Effective Tuesday, March 15, 2022 all COVID-19 restrictions will be coming to an end, and as a result, masks will no longer be required. As well, the general dispensation from Sunday Mass, which was mandated at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic is lifted, effective immediately.
We understand that everyone has a different comfort level at this point in time and we are entrusting parishioners to make the choices that they feel are best for themselves and their families. Let us exercise kindness and respect for one another and for the choices people make.
Thank you to all of you for your patience and kindness and may we continue to grow as parish family united in our faith in Christ.
Official definition as per the Vatican:
"As its name implies, this rite is for the full initiation of a person into the church. The previously existing Rite of Baptism, that came into effect in 1614 as a rite of baptism only, was an abbreviated version of the ancient rite for the initiation of adults and had been used for the most part in the modified form suitable for the baptism of infants. The Rite of the Baptism of Infants, introduced in 1969 to answer the need of a rite suited to infants, follows the practice of the previous rite in being for baptism alone, rather than one of full initiation. The limited scope of this Rite brings into prominence, by way of contrast, the comprehensive nature of the RCIA."

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) was developed after Vatican II (1962-1965) as a revival of the kind of initiation methods that were in use in the early centuries when the Church was extensively persecuted.
If anyone or anyone you know is interested in RCIA for the 2012/13 season please ask them to give the Deacon office a call for more information or e-mail at email@example.com. There is absolutely no pressure to do anything more than "Take a Look".
