Look what was found under St. Bernadette in the grotto this week! A time capsule! Jeff from Acme was part of the team that carefully removed the grotto and fountain. In the capsule were 14 typed pages, including addresses and phone numbers with the old time phone prefixes (lots of FE and ST), of 363 names of people who contributed to the grotto project. (See photos below).
One of the great joys I have as Director of Sacraments and Formation is being part of the RCIA process. RCIA or The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults is a sacramental process for full reception into the Catholic Church which came out of Vatican II. The Council sought to find a better way to bring people into the Church by using the early Christian model in order to develop the current Rite of Christian Initiation. It is a journey of faith for all involved in the process.
