RCIA 2018

On Sunday, February 18th, the First Sunday of Lent, our Catechumens—Azael Valquez & Audra Tracy Gurnich, were sent forth from the community to Cardinal Dolan at St. Patrick Cathedral, who elected them for the Easter Sacraments: Baptism, Confirmation and First Communion. 

Last Sunday, February 25th, those who are already baptized but are preparing for their Confirmation and some First Communion were called to continuing conversion by Fr. Richard and Fr. Joseph. They are:  Amber Esposito, Alyssa Esposito, Alessandra Guarnera, Armando Riccobono, Krizia Guarnera, Nicole Tumbarello, Cristina Terjesen, Nicholas Alessandro, Gabrielle SanFelice and James Aiello.  Please keep them in your prayers. If you are reading this and you have not completed your sacraments of initiation, may their journey inspire you to join us.
