Rite of Election ceremony


Bishop-Rite-of-Election-no-storyBishop Patrick J. McGrath, second from the left, presides over the Rite of Election ceremony held February 15 at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Joseph. The ceremony is one of three the Diocese of San Jose held in which the Bishop or his delegate makes a promise to the hundreds of unbaptized persons from the parishes that they will be baptized, confirmed, and share in the Eucharist at the next Easter Vigil.
