RCIA is a formal process within the Church which allows non-Catholic adults to learn more about the Faith. While it is an educational program, the ultimate goal, if the candidate so chooses, is to be welcomed into the Catholic Faith by reception of the Sacrament of Baptism/Confirmation, which always occurs on Holy Saturday. The RCIA program usually begins in October/November and concludes with the Rite of Acceptance on Holy Saturday. Classes are held weekly and meet at an agreed time convenient for both the instructors and candidates. Assigned readings and class discussion are part of the normal weekly meetings. Any non-Catholic with an interest in learning more about the RCIA process should talk to one of the priests or deacons.

“For day and night your hand was heavy upon me; my strength was sapped as in the heat of summer.”  - Psalms 32:4.

During a heat-related illness, the body’s temperature can quickly rise above 103 degrees. To prevent overheating make sure the person stays hydrated, wears loose clothing, avoids the hottest time of the day, avoids caffeinated beverages, and uses air conditioning or fans to cool down. If suffering from heat stroke, a person may display the following: confusion, dizziness, fainting, clammy/pale skin, headache, fatigue, dry mouth, weak pulse, lack of perspiration, or nausea. If heat stroke is suspected, move the person to a cool place and seek medical attention immediately to prevent serious complications.
