Archbishop Charles Chaput led the Rite of Election March 4-5 at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul, Philadelphia, to pray with and encourage 235 catechumens (those preparing to receive the sacrament of baptism) and 322 candidates (those receiving the sacraments of penance and Eucharist) as they enter the Catholic Church this Easter. See our photo gallery from the Rite of Election liturgy of the Word on Sunday, March 5, which followed a similar liturgy the day prior. (Photos by Sarah Webb)
