The name sounds like some sort of archaic Druidic process. In fact it means that at the Easter Vigil – only 4 weeks hence – we will welcome with delight 9 new members to our parish family. They have learned, studied, thought, prayed together regularly - some for over a year. Now it is our task and our joy to accompany them more seriously. The business of belonging has started for each of them but is far from complete. First by prayer in these 4 weeks we accompany them. Then we must think of practical ways in which we help them to take up all the practices we enjoy and that enrich our lives and families.
