Sunday is the Rite of Election for me and I am so very excited! But I just have a question. I already know that the Rite of Election will be held at the Cathedral and have only the Liturgy of the Word, no mass. Would I be required to go to mass at my parish before the Rite? I already know that my parish will not hold a Rite of Sending for me so I’m just wondering if I should or shouldn’t go to mass this Sunday. Will the Liturgy of the Word be the same at the Rite of Election as it is for this Sunday’s reading?
I have absolutely no problems with attending mass, as I attend faithfully each and every Sunday. Just need to know if it’s important to attend this Sunday before the Rite of Election.
