Rite of the Elect 2014

Rite of the Elect is when those wishing to be Baptized or come into full communion which the Catholic Church are received at the Cathedral by the local Bishop. In our Archdiocese Archbishop Paul Coakley greeted the Elect at Our Lady’s Cathedral March 9. There were three sessions due to the fact that over 700 people will be received into the Church in the Archdiocese at Easter Vigil.  Photos by Cara Koenig/Sooner Catholic.
