The Stages in the
Rite of Christian Initiation Process
Inquiry: I have been called to consider this faith community.
Catechumenate: I am received into the period of preparation.
Purification: I examine my life and come to understand my failings.
Enlightenment: I have been called and initiated. "Thank you, Lord."
Mystagogia: I will never learn enough about my God and my Church.
The next period of Inquiry will be this fall (2013) in the Pastoral Center of St. Patrick's and St. Anthonys.
The Pastoral Center is located behind St. Patrick's Church on S. Massey St.
Watch here for the dates.
Walk-ins are welcome. Actual classes in preparation for the reception of
the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation) will begin in October, 2013.
