Bread of Life Retreat
The Bread of Life Retreat for the PSR students, who will be receiving First Eucharist, was held on Saturday, March 11, 2017 at the Parish Center.
Amanda Schwager, Director of Religious Education (K-8) commented, "I am so blessed to be a part of the faith journey of these beautiful crazy kiddos! The Bread of Life Retreat gets better every year. Thank you so much to all my volunteers, Fr. Don and all the parents, who gave up their Saturday to help me prepare their children for the sacrament of Eucharist! I have the most amazing, bun, and fulfilling job I am truly blessed!"
Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion
The following Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) Inquirers attended the Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Dodge City on Sunday, March 5. Bishop John Brungardt recognized them and welcomed them into the family of God in the name of the universal Church. Those seeking full initiation recorded their names into the Book of the Elect, while those seeking to complete their Sacraments of Initiation blessed themselves with Holy Water, reminding them of the one baptism we share as members of the Body of Christ.
