Archives Rite of Election and Call to Conversion

March 8, 2023

On Feb. 26, the Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion were celebrated by Bishop Terry R. LaValley at St. Mary’s Cathedral.

In the Rite of Election, catechumens, those who have never been baptized, mark their entry into the final phase of their preparation to receive the sacraments of initiation at the Easter Vigil. Following the rite, the catechumens become “elect,” since they have been elected by the Church to become members.

In the Call to Continuing Conversion, individuals who have been baptized but have not received the sacraments of the Eucharist and/or confirmation, known as “candidates,” are invited to join the elect in their final period of preparation.
