Welcome to St. John the Baptist Church


Dear Friends - Queridos Amigos,

I share this information regarding Adult Baptism:

The Catholic Church celebrates the RCIA, Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, as an essential mission to draw all to God the Father, through Jesus the Son, in the power of the Holy Spirit. Saint John the Baptist Parish in San Lorenzo shares in this essential mission as we lead new members through a series of stages, and at their own pace, into full participation in the Catholic Church. These stages shape the journey of conversion for all who seek initiation as well as for the entire parish. Every member of the parish has the opportunity to enter into the journey of conversion with those who are in the RCIA process as we all develop, deepen and enrich our relationship with God. The entire church community helps to form the candidates for initiation by acting as mentors. By consciously being examples of the life of a disciple of Christ, and by being apostles who are sent every Sunday to bring Jesus to every person and event we encounter during the week.

Next week we are celebrating the first of several Rites for those who are interested in becoming Catholic. The Rite of Acceptance into the Order of Cahechumen is the first public step for our Inquirers who have been meeting for several months, praying, studying the Sunday Scriptures and discussing some of the teachings of the Church. Please pray for and encourage our new Catechumen as they enter more fully into the journey toward full conscious and active participation in the Christian life. If you know anyone who in interested in or curious about the Catholic Faith, please invite them to contact Kathleen Kennedy at 351-5050.

God Bless You

Fr. Sergio López
