This Sunday at Holy Rosary Cathedral St. Augustine’s Catechumens & Candidates celebrate the Rite of Election. This marks the progression into the final period of preparation for the sacraments of initiation. At this celebration Archbishop Miller declares Catchumens, who are preparing for Baptism, Confirmation & Eucharist, “members of the elect.” Candidates for full communion and baptized uncatechized Catholics, who are preparing to celebrate the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist, receive a prayer of blessing from the Archbishop. After this Rite they all enter into a more intense period of preparation for the reception of the sacraments at Easter Vigil.
Please keep them in your prayers.
