My Dear People,
The Call to Continuing Conversion and the Rite of Election is at 3 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 14, 2016 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Dodge City.
Click here to complete this form. This form must be completed whether your parish will or will not be participating in the Call to Continuing Conversion and the Rite of Election, Sunday, Feb. 14. Please list the first and last names of the catechumens to be elected and the candidates to be called from your parish. Also, estimate and include the number of family, friends, guests, etc., who will be present for the Rite and/or the meal. Respond by Jan. 25.
Catechumens who are elected will sign the Book of the Elect at this Rite. If you have people sign a “parish” book of the elect, you might want to consider what the Rite of Sending says: “…If the signing of the elect is to take place in the presence of the bishop, it is omitted here.” (#539) I would ask that you allow this ritual action of signing the book of the elect to be reserved for the Rite at the Cathedral.
I look forward to greeting each of the elect and candidates at the reception that follows the Rite.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
+John B. Brungardt
Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Dodge City
