On the first Sunday of Lent in every faith community, when there are catechumens, there is the Rite of Sending and Rite of Election. This morning at the 9:30 a.m. family Mass, we had the Rite of Sending. Sister Inga is accompanying the candidates on this journey through Lent to the Easter Vigil.
At 4:00 p.m. the Catechumens with their sponsors met at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Miami. Catechumens from all over the Archdiocese were gathering. This was the second group to meet. The first group had met earlier in the day for the Rite of Election with Archbishop Thomas Wenski.
