Bishop welcomes 150 people

on the road to the Church

Diocese celebrates ‘Rite of Election’

Video presentation

More than 150 men, women and children on the road to becoming Catholic were officially welcomed along their faith journey Feb. 21 by Bishop Ronald M. Gilmore at the Rite of Election celebration at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
One of the most significant events of the liturgical year, the Rite of Election is the official moment that candidates (baptized members of another Christian denomination -- or baptized Catholics -- who are seeking confirmation and first Eucharist) and catechumens (individuals who have not been baptized and who are seeking baptism, confirmation and first Eucharist) declare their commitment to entering fully the Catholic Church at Easter.
Braving frigid temperatures and snow-packed roads, the candidates and catechumens, along with their families, godparents, and sponsors, came from every corner of the diocese, filling the cathedral.

There, each waited for their name to be called forward to sign the Book of the Elect, or to dip their fingers in the baptismal font.
