Mystagogy

Mystagogy comes from the Greek word meaning "to lead through the mysteries." Mystagogy is a period of accompaniment for new Catholics as they discover what it means to fully participate in the sacramental mysteries of the Church.  The newly baptized are called "neophytes," from the Greek words meaning "new plant," because the faith has been newly planted in them.  Even though their catechetical preparation has been completed, they still have much to learn about what it means to live as Catholic Christians.  They need the ongoing support of the parish community so that the faith newly planted in them can grow deep roots.   Joining them in the mystagogy session gives you an opportunity to share your faith with them and encourage them as they continue their own new journey of faith.

Mystagogy meets each Sunday throughout the Easter season, until the feast of Pentecost from 9:00 a.m. until 9:55 a.m. in the parish library and then the second Sunday of each month until the following Easter.
