    THE LENTEN RITUALS OF THE

    RCIA PROCESS Lent begins a very special time for those par-

    ticipating in the RCIA process, as what we call the

    period of Purification and Enlightenment starts the

    first Sunday of Lent, March 1st.

    On this Sunday we celebrate the Rite of Send-

    ing. Our catechumens (those not yet baptized), Gabi

    Castillo, Ahrianna Canales, Trynity Canales, and

    Brieanna Smead, and our Candidates for Full Com-

    munion (those who are already baptized Christians

    and who will be confirmed and receive Holy Com-

    munion), Jennfer Braithwood and Richard Swanson,

    will be blessed and recognized by the parish. This af-

    ternoon at Immaculate Conception they will be re-

    ceived and blessed by Archbishop Schnurr.

    Those participating publicly in the RCIA pro-

    cess remind us of how very much we ourselves need

    to repent, to return to God, to give to others, and to

    strive for greater holiness in our own lives. Lent is a

    time to prepare ourselves spiritually to celebrate the

    paschal mystery.We spend Lent “thirsting” for the

    waters of Baptism; this is true whether you are antici-

    pating baptism or have already been baptized.

    So, although the rituals we will see in the next

    four weeks are directed specifically towards the Elect

    (those not yet baptized), and the Candidates for Full

    Communion, they are really meant for all of us.

    In the weeks ahead we will celebrate both the

    Penitential Rite, for our Candidates for Full Commun-

    ion, as well as the Rites of Scrutiny, which are specifi-

    cally intended for the Elect. More on those rites in

    future weeks!
