Excitement mounted as the four RCIA candidates from St Dominic’s, Penal, made their final preparation for the Sacraments of Initiation into the Catholic Church.
The road towards this moment was so uncertain due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, these candidates persevered together with their catechists, and like Daniel, overcame obstacles one by one.
The parish was really on the journey too, encouraging them through Friday evening Masses, face to face and virtual, and keeping in contact during lockdown. Catechetical instructions were ad hoc but the fruits of faith were alive.
