RCIA Celebrates First Rite on Nov. 9
Written by Mrs. Jan Riley

Father Vacca makes the Sign of the Cross on the forehead of various members of the RCIA class as part of the ritual for the Rite of Acceptance and Welcoming. The sponsors perform a "signing of the senses" to their candidates. Diana Wolfe passes out crosses to the sponsors to put on their candidates. At the end of the ceremony, they are dismissed by Father Vacca and follow Sister Marilyn out of the church.  Many thanks to Lora King for taking these photos.

Knights of Columbus- November 2014

In October we had our annual Tootsie Roll Distribution.  I call it a distribution since we hand out Tootsie Rolls and don’t push for money.  With your support we collected over $3,100.00, giving $626.00, to each of five groups; Special Olympics Basket Ball in Hays, Starkey, ARC of Sedgwick, New Hope, and Ministries for Disabilities.  Thank you for your great support. Our Grand Knight, Joe King, will be receiving the checks soon and will be able to distribute them to the groups before Thanksgiving.   This month we are trying something new.  Instead of a breakfast for the Lord’s Pantry, we are having a turkey dinner.  The dinner will be smoked turkey & dressing, ham, mashed potatoes, yams, corn, and peas.  Due to the cost we cannot have our normal freewill donation and will be charging a fee for each meal.  The fee is 12 and over - $15.00, under 12 - $7.00, under 3 – free.  We hope this will not deter you from coming and joining us for dinner.  I recently received “Appointed to Bear Much Fruit and Allowing to Ripen”.  I will try to put each ‘fruit’ into the Communicator.  What Fruit of the Spirit do you need to allow to ripen in your life?

Love – of God, neighbor, and yourself.

*How loving is your heart towards God and other people?      *Do you find it hard to love yourself?            * Do you find it hard to love difficult people?

Hope to see you at the dinner, Saturday, November 15.

The Knight of the month of October is Joe King and the family of the month for October is Alex and Jeanne Federico.

RCIA Celebrates the Rite of Acceptance and Welcoming

On Sunday Nov. 9 at the 8:30 Mass there were nine Candidates who came forward to receive the Rite of Acceptance and Welcoming.  During this ceremony each one told Father Vacca what they asked of God’s Church, they each received “Signing of the Senses” by their sponsors, and received a cross and a Bible.

Our candidates and sponsors who participated were:  Martha Mwangi and sponsor, Jenny Cole; Jeff Goering and sponsor, Rich Pakhurst; Manuel Hernandez and sponsor, David Walsh; Janice and Larry Walton and their sponsors, Phyllis and David Blanton; Courtney and Eric Hoefer and their sponsor, Cassie Bieker; Barbara Linder and sponsor, Judi McBroom; Kyle Rowe and sponsor, David Wall.

Every Sunday at 8:30 Mass the RCIA participants gather in the front pews and then be dismissed after the homily.  When the participants leave Mass with an RCIA team member, they are going to St. Theresa’s room to discuss the Mass readings and homily.  This is to help them understand and experience more fully the impact of the scriptures in our everyday lives.  This time together every Sunday is known as “Breaking Open the Word.”

Please pray for the RCIA process and those who are on this journey of faith.

Diana Wolfe.
