Congratulations to our catechumen, Josh and our candidates, Natalia, Annetta, LaTonya, Jayleen, Cynthia and Phillip, as they completed a milestone in their journey of faith towards initiation and full communion in the Catholic Church. The celebrations of the Rites of Sending, Election and Call to Continuing Conversion mark a transition in the RCIA process from a period of catechetical instruction to a period of spiritual preparation and growth called “purification and enlightenment”. (Also known as “P&E”) Our catechumen is now called “elect” as he has committed to receiving the sacraments of initiation at the Easter Vigil Mass. During this P&E period, the elect will celebrate three rites called “scrutinies” and the candidates will celebrate their first experience of the sacrament of reconciliation.

The P&E period runs concurrently with our Catholic season of Lent and like Lent, is a time of prayerful recollection. This P&E period is intended 1) to “purify” the minds and hearts of the elect and candidates as they search their own consciences and do penance and 2) to “enlighten” them with a deeper knowledge of Christ. (See RCIA, #139)

As we complete these first two weeks of the Lenten season, let us, in addition to preparing ourselves for the celebration of the passion, death and resurrection of our Savior. Remember to include our elect and candidates in your daily prayers and Mass intentions.
