“The second step in Christian initiation is the liturgical rite called both election and the enrollment of names” (RCIA 118)

The Rite of Election:

  • Ritualizes the Church’s acceptance of the catechumens as prepared for initiation
  • Celebrates God’s “election”, or choice of the catechumens
  • Marks the beginning of the period of final, more intense preparation known as Purification & Enlightenment
