WELCOME TO ST. THERESA
Each year I stand in awe as our church receives new members into its fold through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). This year St. Theresa welcomed 18 new members into our flock: Carlos Valdes, Yadira Lizardi, Felipe Gonzalez,
Yusmila Arocha, Kerry Cambre, Darina Espinoza,
Zuriel Espinoza, Rocio Ramirez,
Andrew Morales, Wenceslao Suero, Luis Espinoza, Brenda Gonzalez, Karla Lopez, Pedro Ramirez,
Vicenta Rodriguez, Victoria Rodriguez, and Griselda Olvera., and Jose Nava.
As I stood at the Easter vigil mass (April 3, 2021) as well as at the Confirmation mass (April 18, 2021) and listened to the words of the sacraments as they were performed, I felt proud of the decision that each of you made to become a part of our faith community. It was not a decision made by someone else but made by each of you. Whatever the storms of life you have endured to this day, you have now made the decision to be a part of the Catholic Church. With your sponsors/godparents, our team members, Fr. Eric Gyan and Fr. Kevin Zubel, each of you came here openly and excited to enter our church as we are proud of you. Each of you remind those of us who are cradle Catholics of how blessed we are to be a Catholic Christian and to call St. Theresa of Avila our home.
May God Bless each of you this Easter season
Alice Blair and Angela Tovar
Are you or someone you know interested in becoming Catholic?
The RCIA Program is a faith formation process by which adults become full members of the Catholic community.
People who feel called to the Catholic community are enabled to deepen their faith while at the same time learning the
traditions of the Catholic Church. While education is an important component, it is primarily a formation process.
This is an opportunity to come together with a community of adults to grow in faith, and prayerfully consider God's timing in discerning decisions to become Catholic or receive Sacraments. Sessions are held on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m.
If you would like more information or would like to begin discerning the Catholic faith contact Alice Blair, Director of Christian Formation, (225) 647-6588 or [email protected]
