Do you know? (from RCIA)

Do you know if a person from another faith tradition has to be  baptized again to be received into the Catholic church?

Baptism happens just once in a lifetime. The Sacrament of Baptism changes us, linking us with the communion of believers, making us part of “a royal priesthood, a holy nation” (Peter 2:0). That change can never be wiped away. Because of this, the Catholic Church never repeats this sacrament. Baptism administered in other Christian churches, with the pouring of water and the words “I baptize you in the name of the father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,” (Christian Initiation, Gen. Intro,. 23) is honored in the Catholic church. The sacrament is the same even for many churches that are not in full communion with the Catholic church.

Construction Update!

The construction continues to progress well, on target for cost and for timing.   Even as work has been periodically rescheduled due to several children’s masses, funerals, and other liturgical activities, the project remains on schedule.  Take a minute to look at the stone being installed.  It has a great appearance and will have the leak free durability we need. The major scaffolding on the north gable is already removed and reset for the next phases of work.   The top of the tower has been refurbished and, if you look carefully, you will see the brick repairs.  Also, you will notice the newly treated surfaces are bright and the required flashings and expansion joints are completed.  You may have noticed the stacked pallets of new roofing base in the Northwest parking lot as roof work will begin soon.

All of the construction activities have been coordinated to permit the set up and running of the Festival as usual.  The Northwest parking lot will continue to be unavailable until further notice.   The schedule for construction has been adjusted for three weeks around Christmas to ensure the smooth running of the many liturgical events that surround the holiday.

I LOVE every journey of how each person came to believe the Catholic faith. I feel the video covers a wide span of questioning and processing for each individual, which relates to so many searching for the truth.
