Eight Neumann Students Join the Church

Eight Neumann students completed the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and joined the Roman Catholic Church on Sunday, April 23, at Our Lady of Angels Convent in Aston, Pennsylvania.

 

The students are Jessica Donovan and Kabreeze Sheed from the Archdiocese of Philadelphia; Rebecca Cruice, Cassidy Deane and Jaclyn Hahn from the Diocese of Camden; Andrea De La Cruz from the Diocese of Wilmington; Ashley Girard from the Diocese of Trenton; and Matthew Zendejas from the Diocese of San Bernardino, California.

 

“The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a program intended to provide those students who express a desire to be fully received into the Catholic Church, with preparation for the reception of the sacraments,” explained Patrick McKenzie, director of Campus Ministry at Neumann. “During this academic year, eight students requested to be part of the program offered here through the office of Campus Ministry. The candidates have spent countless hours in prayer, reflection, and service in preparation for the reception of their sacraments and are eager to share this moment with their families and the Neumann University Community.”

 

The Mass was officiated and the ceremony performed by Bishop Edward M. Deliman, pastor of St. Charles Borromeo Parish in Bensalem and auxiliary bishop of Philadelphia.
