Bishop presides at the Rite of Election

Bishop Dennis Sullivan presided at the annual Rite of Election at Our Lady of Hope Parish, Blackwood on March 10. Catechumens, joined by their parish catechists, family and friends, declared their readiness to become members of the Catholic Church at the upcoming Easter Vigil.

Men and women preparing to enter the Catholic Church stand and affirm their intentions.
