** PLEASE NOTE: Children/Youth Catechumens and Candidates are ONLY those who will be initiated at Easter WITH their parents who are also catechumens or candidates.
Catechumens are the unbaptized coming into the Church.
Candidates are those who were BAPTIZED IN A DIFFERENT FAITH and are coming into the Church.
The Rite of Election is not for baptized Catholics who are receiving the Sacraments of Eucharist and/or Confirmation.
Please note: This year we are issuing appointment times for pre and post rite pictures and we are assigning seats. You will receive your photo appointment and assigned seating the day of the training on Tuesday, February 28th (San Diego) or Thursday, March 2nd (Imperial Valley).
