Pictured are the adults in our Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) classes; they are preparing to receive the sacraments at the Easter Vigil. After a parish blessing and the rite of sending, they attended the Archdiocesan Rite of Election and Call to Continuing Conversion, along with their sponsors, teachers, and Fr. Barry. This ceremony served as the closing of their Catechumenate Period. It was celebrated by Archbishop Gregory and held at the National Shrine, Washington DC.
