Archdiocesan Neophyte Mass

Lent / Easter 2024

We congratulate all parish Catechumenate (RCIA) coordinators, their team members and their entire parish communities for all that they have done to prepare their elect and candidates to celebrate the sacraments of Christian initiation for this coming Easter season. We pray that the Spirit of God will continue to guide and strengthen their ministry efforts as they move forward.

As we continue our Lenten journey and prepare to enter the Easter season, we know that it is very important to continue the accompaniment of our Elect and Candidates who will become our neophytes, newly confirmed and newly received.

And so, to show his ongoing pastoral support and concern for them, His Eminence, Cardinal Timothy Dolan invites all Neophytes and newly confirmed RCIA candidates and newly received to the annual Archdiocesan Neophyte Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on the sixth Sunday of Easter, May 5, 2024 at 10:15am.

His Eminence, Cardinal Dolan is inviting all those who participated in their parish’s Catechumenate: the Neophytes, the newly Confirmed and Received into the Church, along with their Godparents, Sponsors, and RCIA team members to this special Mass on May 5th. There will be reserved seating at the cathedral for all registered parish groups.

We ask that each parish register their group for this event ASAP.

or call 646-794-2574 or email us at [email protected]

I hope your parish community will be able to participate in the annual Archdiocesan Neophyte Mass on the 5th of May 2024.

Wishing you much success with all your parish celebrations. Let’s keep each other in prayer, as we celebrate what the Lord has and is doing for us.

Director, Catechumenate
