Surrounded by parishioners form all over the archdiocese, all of whom will be accepted into the church at the Easter Vigil Mass, Archbishop George pointed to the welcome growth of the church.
“Our Church is Growing”
His words came during the Rite of election of Catechumens and the Call to Continuing Conversion, at St David’s Metropolitan Cathedral, on March 5.
In a moving ceremony candidates and their godparents were called forward and individually welcomed by the Archbishop.
The godparents affirmed that the Catechumens were sufficiently prepared to be enrolled among the elect for the coming celebration of Easter.
The book containing the names of those to be received into full communion at Easter was carried in procession to the altar and Archbishop George asked them to come forward with their sponsors.
A most moving occasion.
