YEAR ROUND RCIA
FROM HOME ON ZOOM WITH DEACON ALAN
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process by which non-Catholics enter the Catholic Faith.
To become a Catholic, one must understand the teachings of the Church, believe in those teachings, and be a baptized Caholic. If someone is baptized, they will conclude their journey with the receptionof the Sacraments of Baptism and Confirmation. If someone was baptized in another Christian denomination, they will study the teachings of the Catholic Faith in RCIA and conclude their journey by being received into full communion with the Church, which may include conditional Baptism.
E-mail Deacon Alan if you are interested or if you know of someone who has expressed interest, or who has been many years away from the faith.
Let Alan know and he will contact them and welcome them to join.
Pray & Reach out to someone who needs to come home to the Father's House.

Fr. Jozef hears confessions daily from one half hour before Mass on Monday to Saturday.
Special Penitential Services, with Fr. Jozef Kobos and visiting priests to hear confessions, are held twice a year. Once before Easter during Lent, and once before Christmas during Advent.
Children in the Religious Education Program celebrate their own First Reconciliation and Penitential Services with Fr. Jozef presiding as part of their faith formation program.
To give time for the preparation needed for this blessed event, a minimum of six months notice is required. Couples are required to take a recognized "Marriage Preparation Course" and all the applicable documentation and dispensations must be approved by the Diocese. Please note that for the Catholic parties in the marriage, the documentation includes a recent copy of their baptismal certificate, signed within the last 6 months, by the current Priest where the baptism occurred.
Home Visits: If you would like a caring visit, a supportive smile, or a friendly hand to help in difficult times of loneliness, loss, pain or illness call the Pastoral Care Committee through the Parish office 250 390-2612. If you are unable to get to church and would like to receive Holy Communion a member of our Communion Ministry will be pleased to bring communion to you.
Hospital Visits: To receive a pastoral visit, holy communion, or the Sacrament of the Sick from Fr. Jozef, please call the Parish Office at 250 390-2612.
VICTORIA HOSPITAL currently has no onsite Spiritual Care employee, there is no notification at this time of Catholic patients to the Catholic Hospital Chaplain (Fr. Thomas). This means that if you know of someone in the hospital who would like to receive Holy Communion or even a prayerful visit, it is imperative that you let your parish office know. They will then contact Father Thomas, the Catholic Hospital Chaplain for visits and he will further communicate to the outreach Eucharistic volunteers. For the past few months we have been notified of very few Catholic patients in the hospital and we would like to make sure patients don't miss the opportunity of Holy Communion at a time when they may need it the most.
We are happy to provide the sacraments for those who are ill or infirmed in their home or in the hospital. Please contact the office at 250 390-2612 to make your request.
Communion can be received, on a one time or a regular basis, and Confession and Anointing of the Sick as needed.
Visitation of the sick at home or in the hospital by Fr. Jozef is every first Friday of the month.
