The Rite of Sending and the Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion
Sunday, March 9 is a big step for our RCIA candidates, in which they will celebrate the Rite of Sending and the Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion. Our candidates (those already baptized, who will be receiving Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil) have been called to complete the sacraments of initiation. The Rite of Sending, which will be celebrated at the Our Lady of Peace 10:00 A.M. Mass Sunday, March 9, offers the parish community and the candidates' sponsors the opportunity to express their approval of the candidates, and to send them forth to the Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion, assured of the parish's care and support, as they now enter into the last phase of their preparation for the Easter Sacraments. The Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion is celebrated the afternoon of Sunday, March 9 at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. The five Our Lady of Peace Candidates will be presented to Bishop Frederick Campbell. During this Rite, the Church formally ratifies the Candidates' readiness to be received into full Communion with the Catholic Church. In turn the Candidates publicly acknowledge their desire to be receive into full communion with the Catholic Church. We ask your continued prayers for all of our Candidates.

STAND AND BE COUNTED---NEW MEMBERS WELCOME
Registering in a parish is a declaration of your desire to be part of a Catholic community and a commitment to the life of the parish family. To so clearly state your Catholic commitment in all its dimensions brings you benefits and responsibilities of many kinds. Being a registered parishioner makes things much easier when it is time for infant Baptism, school registration, arranging weddings, and when asked to be a sponsor for Baptism or Confirmation and even funerals. We are often asked to provide affidavits for Baptism and Confirmation sponsors. We can only do so if a person is a registered, active and contributing member of our parish. Are you a registered parishioner? If not, please consider registering.
