    We are in Oklahoma and our bishops have initiated the opening of our churches for public worship. One gentleman who has stage 4 cancer was baptized at a private ceremony, using the rite for Exceptional Circumstances. For the rest of our elect, we completed the Scrutinies during a couple weekly sessions and received them into the church on Pentecost. Yesterday, our Candidates completed their initiation. It was a unique year, but just as joyful an experience as if it were the Easter Vigil.

    St. John of the Cross Lemon Grove. CA Diocese of San Diego Bishop so far has not given guidance on Baptism for the catechumens/neophytes. We are waiting to hear, hopefully the Candidates will be rec’d soon. Pray for us. Thanks
