At the conclusion of Mas

Bishop Richard in his comments at Mass stated “That they are referred to as the Elect, because they have been ‘chosen’ (by God).

This means that they commit themselves to God and will be Baptized, Confirmed and receive First Holy Communion at the Easter Vigil on April1, 2018.

The Church welcomes them and invites Catholics across the Diocese to pray for them”.
