Have you been considering coming into the Church? Are you curious about why Catholics do what they do during Mass? Do you have a loved one or friend who wants to know more? If you answered yes, I have the answer for you!
Come join us Wednesday evenings at 7:00 starting September 5th to discover more about the Catholic Church.
The RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) started in 1972, but its roots hearken back to the early centuries of the Church, when catechumens (those not baptized) would be instructed in the faith for as long as 2-3 years before being brought into full communion with the Church. The process isn't as long at St. Cecilia and both baptized and unbaptized inquirers are welcomed!
For more answers, please contact Sheila Croninger at (316)524-9041 or the church office at (316)522-0461.
Being aware of changes in our society and culture that affect our youth, as well as the reality that many eligible candidates for Confirmation decide not to receive the Sacrament after they are into their high school years,
Bishop Kemme changed the age of Confirmation in our diocese from Grades 9 & 10 to Grades 6 and 7.
Specific to St. Cecilia Catholic Church, a three-year transitional plan for Confirmation Preparation Program will be implemented. This year, students in Grades 7 through 10, as well as those who are older and not yet confirmed, will be confirmed. All candidates must be Baptized and have received the Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Holy Communion.
Students in Grades 7 & 8 who attend our parish school will participate in Confirmation Preparation during their school day. Our youth who are in Grades 7 & 8 who attend a public, private, or home school, and are eligible for Confirmation, will be prepared for the Sacrament on Sunday mornings at 9:00am-9:50am during PSR (Parish School of Religion).
Students in Grades 9 & 10 will be assigned to small groups to prepare for the Sacrament beginning in early October.
A meeting for these candidates and their parents will be held on Tuesday, August 20 at 6:30pm in the parish hall. Details about the program and the full schedule will be shared at that time. Information about small-group leaders and meeting places will be emailed to parents after the first meeting.
Registration for Confirmation will be done in conjunction with PSR Enrollment following the weekend Masses on August 24 & 25 with the exception of the 7th& 8thgrade school students, who will be registered after school begins.
