The ancient Rite of Election for unbaptized people and the Call to Continuing Conversion for people baptized in other Christian traditions are celebrated together on the First Sunday of Lent. Below are some pictures of the event. Keep the Archdiocese of Cincinnati’s Catechumens in your prayers as they prepare for Easter Vigil and full reception into the church.
