February 21 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
NOTE: THERE IS A DATE CHANGE FROM THE ORIGINAL SCHEDULE. The Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion is now scheduled for February 28, not February 21.
The Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion will be celebrated by Bishop Coyne on the First Sunday at Lent at St. Joseph’s Cathedral. During the Rite of Election, the Church “elects” those seeking full initiation into the Church through Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist at Easter. The Church also recognizes those already-baptized Christians seeking full initiation into the Catholic Church and pledges the support of prayer as they journey toward Full Communion in the Catholic Church.
Friends and family of those being participating in the Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion and all the faithful from around the diocese are invited to celebrate with us.
Parishes that have catechumens or candidates are asked to fill out the Rite of Election Registration Form.
