THE RITE OF ELECTION OF CATECHUMENS

The Rite of Election of Catechumens and the Call to continuing Conversion of Candidates who are Preparing for Reception into the Full Communion of the Catholic Church is celebrated each year on the First Sunday of Lent. We pray for those entering into Lent, as they have made their intention known to join us at the table of the Lord, as we, baptized members of the Roman Catholic Church, reflect upon our initiation and prepare to be renewed in our Baptism at Easter.
