I thought the Rite of Acceptance (into the Order of Catechumens, for the unbaptized) and the Rite of Welcome (into Full Communion for the already baptized) went very well. At least, I thought Fr. Dennis Polanco’s approach made it personable. He brought both groups together along with the Assembly, invited everyone to the Mass and tied in the Homily with the Advent Season. I also thought some of the choir music was also memorable for this occasion.
Please take this short survey below so that you can also have an opportunity to reflect upon this important formal rite and beginning of your faith journey with this parish, who met you for the first time today.
