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.

MESSAGE FROM THE YOUTH GROUP
The Youth wishes to extend their gratitude to Ed and Doris Landry for their continued dedication to the collecting and processing of the recyclable beverage cartons, cans and bottles.
The youth also thank the parish for bring their recyclables to the church.
In 2019 a total of $1,424 was donated to Chalice by the youth group.
This included the monthly support of our sponsored child, Joseph, in Kenya, and donations sent from the Chalice Christmas Gift Catalogue.
Please continue to save your refunable bottles and cans so that, we can resume cashing them in. We need to continue to support our Chalice child Joseph, and this is a very effective way to do so.
YOUTH GROUP MESSAGE
Ed and Doris Landry are again collecting refundable bottles, cans and cartons etc. for the Youth Group sponsored child through Chalice.
Your refundable items are greatly appreciated.
Please DO NOT place your refundable items in the box outside as it appears someone else is taking them; instead please call Ed and Doris at 250 758-0409 to make arrangements with you regarding the drop off location.
Please DO NOT donate any items that are non-refundable, i.e. dairy containers, jars, laundry soap containers etc. only the items that are charged a deposit at the time of purchase are acceptable.
Thank you for helping the Youth Group to support Joseph and his family!
RECYCLING FOR CHALICE
The youth group has been sponsoring a child in Kenya for many years through Chalice, a Catholic Organization. This sponsorship is dependent on the money received through the recycling of bottles. Please continue to bring your cans and bottles and place them in the box labeled Trinity Catholic, under the coat rack in the hallway.
Thank you for your support.
