Rite of Election 2012


The Rite of Election is an ancient Rite, whereby all adults prepaing to be Baptised at the Easter Vigil in their parish; are invited to gather and pray with their Bishop. The names of our new brothers and sisters in Christ, are written down in our Diocesan 'Book of the Elect', as a recognition of our new bond. We also pray with and bless all adult candidates for Confirmation, Eucharist and full reception.  Then we send you home to your parish to finalise preparations  - now aware that we are part of a much larger faith community, blessed and a blessing.
