RCIA at The Catholic University of America

On Saturday, October 31st, Our Lady of the Angels Province friar, Fr. Jude DeAngelo, OFM Conv. (top right & insert right – University Chaplain at The Catholic University of America), administered the Sacrament of Baptism to one student (above) and the Sacrament of Confirmation to a total of six students (below), who had completed RCIA instruction, through CUA Campus Ministry. Although our friars serving at CUA traditionally celebrate these Sacraments with the students during the Easter Vigil, this year’s celebration had to be deferred, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also on hand for the celebrations was Friar Andrzej Brzeziński, OFM Conv. (top left – Director of the RCIA program at the University), who had prepared the students.
Living in community in our SS. Francis and Clare Friary and serving at CUA with Friar Jude and Friar Andrzej, are Fr Louis Maximilian Smith, OFM Conv. and Fr. Albert Puliyadan, OFM Conv. Two more residents of our Washington DC Friary are a student friar from India (via the Our Lady of Consolation Province USA) – Fr. Tony Varghese Vattaparambil, OFM Conv. and our own Province Director of Vocations, Br. Nick Romeo, OFM Conv. (vocations@olaprovince.org).
