It is a source of great joy that we will be welcoming over 3000 new Catholics into the Church of Dallas this Easter.
Last week 700 catechumens underwent the Rite of Election at the Cathedral. Catechumens are unbaptized persons preparing to be baptized and confirmed at the Easter Vigil. The numbers were so great that four different Rite of Election ceremonies were needed to accommodate the catechumens and their families.
Together with 2300 other previously baptized candidates they have been preparing to enter the church in the Rite of Election for Adults for nearly a year. All will enter the Church at the Easter Vigil.
Please pray for our catechumens and candidates as they begin the final stage of their journey.
