RCIA for Adults and Children

rcia2Part of the RCIA journey of faith is to participate in the Scrutinies. These are RCIA steps that are intended to scrutinize a catechumen’s heart and mind to develop and deepen a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. At each Scrutiny, the catechumen is invited and challenged to express publicly and privately where he or she is in her journey of faith to become a Catholic.

The Scrutinies are celebrated on the Third, Fourth, and Fifth Sundays of Lent. The readings are from Liturgical Year A and on the Gospel of John.

At OLMC, the Scrutinies will be celebrated at the 11:00AM Mass. The First Scrutiny was on March 20th with the Gospel reading about Jesus encountering the Samaritan woman at the well. The Second Scrutiny is today, March 27th with the Gospel reading about Jesus healing the blind man at the Pool of Siloam. The Third Scrutiny will be on April 3rd with the Gospel reading about Jesus bringing Lazarus back from the dead.

Gabriela Blacido is the candidate who will participate in these Scrutinies to help prepare her on a journey to receive Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist in the Easter Vigil. The parish is invited to pray for her.

The presentation of the Creed (Apostles or Nicene) to the elect (non-baptized candidate for Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist) takes place during the week after the First Scrutiny. This is an important step in the RCIA journey of faith. It is intended to help the elect hear and understand the fundamental beliefs of the Catholic Church. Gabriela Blacido is the elect who will liturgically receive the Apostles Creed on Saturday, March 26th, at the 8:30AM Mass.
