Rite of Election: Welcome to the Family!

This afternoon, at the Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption, in Trenton, the Diocese celebrated the annual Rite of Election. Close to 700 people filled the Cathedral for a beautiful liturgy recognizing the "election" of the candidates for the sacraments of initiation at the Easter Vigil.

The Elect were joined by their families, friends, and the RCIA teams from their parishes, who have been bringing them to this point in their spiritual journeys. During the next few weeks of Lent, they will continue their intensive study, and preparation for the celebration of the Easter Sacraments.

Together, we welcome these newest "sisters and brothers" in the faith.!
