                        of the BIBLE
                   A Lenten Journey
Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible, by
Jeff Cavins and Sarah Christmyer, is a
n engaging8 week journey through Salvation History that provides the easiest way
to understand the Bible.  
We meet weekly beginning
 Thursday February 1st, 7pm thru
Thursday March 22nd in the Church
 Each session includes a 30 minute video
presentation and group discussion
 Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible
makes the complex simple. 
It helps us uncover the story woven
throughout Scripture so that we can get
the “big picture” of the Bible and
understandwhat it is all about.  
 The Bible is a story about
the Father’s unfailing love for us,
each one of us, individually
a love that we are now
called to share with others.

“Life is a journey that should
               not be walked alone...
   Are you interested in exploring Catholicism for  
yourself  or do you know someone who might 
  be interested in finding out more about our faith?             
 Are you baptized in another Christian church
or thinking about joining the Catholic Church?
 Are you Catholic but never received
Confirmation or First Communion?  
     If so, then RCIA may be for you!
 
 What is the RCIA?

How does someone become Catholic?
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
is the process by which people 
can question, search, and inquire 
into the Catholic faith.  
It is a journey that leads many to seek
full membership in our
Catholic Church
 
Our RCIAprogram addresses the 
conversion needs for:
  • Adults who have never been baptized;
  • Adults who have been baptized in another Christian tradition;
  • Adults who were baptized Catholic but have had no instruction in the faith or have not received the Sacraments of First Eucharist and/or Confirmation;

RCIAis about growth in faith and growth in a relationship with God. 

   Saint Ann Catholic Church Invites You
to get answers to ALL your questions
about the Catholic faith...
 
  You do not have to journey alone!!
 
SESSIONS have begun AND 
continue throughout the year

Father, 
You invite each one of us by name

We ask that You bless your Church in
the Archdiocese of Newark

from our families and friends
who will faithfully serve your people
as Priests, Religious Brothers and Sisters,

Inspire us to grow in our
relationship with You and open
our hearts to accept Your invitation.
We ask this in the name
of Jesus our Lord.  Amen
"Becoming a priest or a man or woman religious 
is not primarily our own decision…. 
Rather it is the response to a call and
to a call of love."
