Rite of Election


#1

My Rite of Election ceremony is this Saturday and I am very excited. I never thought I would be this hyped about religion at the age of 47. My RCIA experience has been wonderful so far and I've never felt this type of joy before.


#2

I am happy to hear it. So you will officially be declared members of The Elect and proceed to the period of Purification and Enlightenment!


#3

I'm excited for you!
I facilitate RCIA and this year has been one of my favourite yet.
I remember as if it was yesterday when I sat in the seat, waiting for my name to be called. It's an amazing thing.
What a year, right? And it's just started! Wait until Easter! WOW!
Have a wonderful lent.

I am so happy and excited for you! :D

I remember RCIA being one of the best times of my life. Just wait until the Easter Vigil (is that when you'll become a member of the Church?) -- that'll really knock your socks off! ;)

Congratulations Jkita,
My Rite of Election is this Sunday and I am excited too!
This time last year I had just felt a call to the Catholic church.
RCIA and confirmation seemed very far off but the time has passed quickly.
God bless you in you journey.

Good stuff! Welcome home!

That is so awesome, Jkita! I am a Candidate so mine will be the Rite of Continuing Conversion, also this coming Sunday (2/17). I began this journey in January 2012; on one hand this year has crept by, but on the other hand, WHOOSH here it is Lent already. These next six weeks simply can't go quickly enough.

Thanks!:slight_smile:

My wife and I will be having ours this Sunday. God Bless all of us taking the second major step on this journey!

I started my RCIA class September 2012, I've been told I'm lucky to only have to go for six months. Congratulations! on completing one year and God bless you. :)

I just finished my Rite of Election ceremony and it was beautiful. My priest called my name, I am so blessed. :extrahappy:
