On this Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time we celebrate the Rite of Acceptance by welcoming those who will be received in the of order of catechumens. Fr. Miguel welcomed them outside of the church and introduced them to the community.
Catechumens received the sign of the cross on their ears, eyes, lips, over their hearts, shoulders, hands, and feet by Fr. Miguel and their sponsors. After the homily, they were presented with a bible and a special cross as a sign of recognition. Fr. Miguel prayed over them as they were dismissed to their classroom.
