People preparing to enter the Catholic Church fully this Easter got a welcome from Archbishop Charles Chaput during a Rite of Election liturgy Saturday, Feb. 13 at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. and Paul, Philadelphia. The afternoon Liturgy of the Word welcomed catechumens (non-Catholics who will be baptized into the Christian faith) and candidates (those baptized Christians who will receive the sacrament of holy Eucharist and full communion with the church) from Delaware County and Philadelphia-North. Each person met Archbishop Chaput and received a blessing. The archbishop met catechumens and candidates from other regions of the Philadelphia Archdiocese at two liturgies Feb. 13 and one on Feb. 14 at the cathedral. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
