Rite of Election – Diocesan celebration of a step on the RCIA journey
March 1 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Rite of Election will be celebrated on the first Sunday of Lent on 3 p.m. Sunday, March 1, 2020 at the Cathedral of the Holy Family, 123 Nelson Road, Saskatoon, including celebration of the Sunday Eucharist.
All are welcome to join Bishop Mark Hagemoen as he welcomes and blesses catechumens – those who are not yet baptized and are preparing to receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at Easter ¬ as part of journeying through RCIA (the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults).
There will also be a blessing of candidates during the celebration – those who are already baptized journeying to full membership in the Catholic Church.
Lent is a season of purification and enlightenment for those preparing for baptism – a journey that the entire Church shares, as we prepare to renew our own baptismal promises at Easter. Everyone is welcome to attend this joyful diocesan celebration!
