Prince of Peace welcomed 20 individuals into the Catholic Church on November 10! They were brought into full communion as confirmed Catholics at the 5 pm Mass and received their first Eucharist. This group of baptized Christians had been attending Mass regularly with us for at least one year, (and in some cases, many years), but had never joined the Church. All had been previously baptized and had previously been involved in Christian worship communities.
To facilitate bringing these Christians into the Catholic Church, Prince of Peace developed and implemented a shorter formation program which familiarized them with the Creed, the Sacraments, and other knowledge essential to joining the Church. Participating as catechists in this program were Monsignor Michael Sexton, Father Joy Nellissery, POP Formation Director Megan Everett and POP Director of Family Life, Dr. Dale Wisely (who has a master’s degree in theological studies.) Also included in the preparation were required independent reading and weekly written journal reflections.
