RCIA Scrutinies

March 13, 2023

The season of Lent coincides with the Purification and Enlightenment phase of the RCIA process. During this phase, our Elect and Candidates for Full Communion are called to intensify their prayer lives and discern more deeply their desire to join the Church. As the larger parish community, we are called to help them develop their relationship with God and the Church and to pray for them.

The 2023 Scrutinies will be celebrated at the 1pm and 5:30pm Masses on the Third Sunday of Lent, March 12, and at the 11am and 1pm Masses on the Fourth and Fifth Sundays of Lent, March 19 and 26. During the Scrutinies we look within ourselves to find anything that keeps us from Christ and then look to Christ to heal those weaknesses and to strengthen us as we face further temptations. Please keep our fourteen in your prayers!
