We congratulate our RCIA Elect and Candidates who are celebrating the Rites of Sending/Election this week. During the Rite of Sending, those awaiting baptism sign the Book of the Elect. Those who have already been baptized are also recognized for their desire to be initiated into our Catholic faith at the Great Easter Vigil this year. The Rite of Sending takes place at 9:00 a.m. Mass on Sunday, March 5 and the Rite of Election takes place on Tuesday, March 7th, at Mission Basilica with Bishop Kevin Vann. There, our group will celebrate a beautiful Liturgy of the Word, their names will be called, and they will be officially recognized by our Church as our beloved future members. Please continue to pray for them as they journey with us through Lent.
