All are invited to celebrate the Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion on Sunday, March 1, at 3 p.m. at St. Mary’s Cathedral in St. Cloud. Bishop Donald Kettler will preside.
The event focuses on three groups of people: catechumens, or unbaptized people seeking the three sacraments of initiation — baptism, confirmation and the Eucharist; baptized Catholics seeking the sacraments of confirmation and/or the Eucharist; and baptized Christians seeking reception into the full communion of the Catholic Church. The Rite of Election is celebrated during Lent as part of the RCIA process, or the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
If you are a catechumen or candidate and have not registered with the diocesan Office of Worship, please register online at http://worship.stcdio.org and click on “Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)” or call the office at 320-255-9068 by Feb. 14.
