Event Details

Candidates from across the diocese seeking confirmation and catechumens seek all three sacraments of imitation (baptism, first communion and confirmation). After the candidates have completed their formation in the Catholic faith, they are elected in the name of the Lord and of the local church to which they belong.

Election in our contemporary culture often signifies a contest or our choosing something or somebody. The Rite of Election is not about the candidates choosing the Sacraments of Initiation, rather, as in the great scriptural tradition of election, it is about God’s choice of the person. For Christians this is the call to embrace the mission of Jesus, the mission of God’s Kingdom.
