Mass with Rite of Acceptance into the Order of the Catechumenate & Rite of Welcome


Location: Basilica of the Sacred Heart (View on

The Rite of Acceptance and the Rite of Welcome are the first public rites of the RCIA and mark the first "yes" that this year's inquirers offer to the invitation of Jesus Christ and His Church to "come and see". This celebration also marks the first time this RCIA group is publicly presented to the community of faith at the Basilica.
