This weekend (March 16-17), our RCIA candidates participate in the Rite of Sending, where they travel to the Cathedral and are presented to the Archbishop. St. Francis Borgia will be sending three Catechumens and three Candidates to the Archbishop.
A catechumen is someone who has never been baptized in any faith tradition and are now preparing for Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil. A Candidate is a person who has been baptized, maybe as a Catholic or in another faith tradition, and they now seek to be in Full Communion with the Catholic community by being Confirmed and receiving First Communion and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil.
Please keep these special people in your prayers as they complete the RCIA process!
