Scrutinies with the Elect
On the Third, Fourth, and Fifth Sundays of Lent at the 10:30 am Mass at Our Lady of the Rosary, we will celebrate the rites of penance and purification with our elect who are preparing to receive the sacraments of initiation at the Easter Vigil. The purpose of these rites is to uncover all that would lead them away from Christ, so that they might be able to come to a full Christian life. The support of a parish community is vital to this process. At the same time, these brief rites call us, the baptized, to uproot the sin in our lives to be more faithful to our own baptism.
