Presenting the Creed to our Elect

“My dear friends, listen carefully to the words of that faith by which you will justified. The words are few, but the mysteries they contain are great. Receive them with a sincere heart and be faithful to them”

Auxiliary Bishop of Tokyo, His Grace Andrea Lembo, saying this presented the Creed to our eight elect who will be receiving the sacrament of Initiation during the coming Easter Vigil. The Creed is the prayer ‘I Believe’ which constitutes our faith in Jesus Christ.

We pray for our elect, Junji, Anna, Hitoshi, Ibrahim, Ren, Yoshi, Irina, Hugo and Kingsley. Through our RCIA programme they have been supported by the FCC community to reflect deeply on the Word of God and to discern the faith in Christ Jesus.

Are you interested in the Catholic faith or do you know of anyone wanting to know more about the Catholic teachings?

We have begun our enquiry stage of our RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) process. Please email Caji, Pastoral Associate at fccpastoral@gmail.com
