Please pray for the 11 members of our parish grouping who are going through the RCIA process, as they prepare to be received into the
Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil Mass in April. During the Season of Lent, the Church focuses on the final days of preparation, reflection, and prayer for RCIA candidates throughout our world. These 11 individuals represent all of our worship sites, including the Newman Center. We are so blessed in Northern Butler County!

Renee Dannels, Robert Dumbaugh, Caleb Hood, Skylynn Jolley, Gregory Merkle, David McGregor, Christina Lynn Moss, Rebecca Nogacek, John Osborne, Dawn Tucci, and Jennifer Weismantle.

This Sunday, March 15th, RCIA candidates from all over the Diocese will
travel to the Cathedral in Pittsburgh to celebrate the Rite of Election.
