On the First Saturday in Lent the Rite of Election is held in Lancaster Cathedral where those who have decided to become Catholics, and who have followed the Journey in Faith Course (RCIA), are officially welcomed by the Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Michael Campbell OSA.
The Cathedral was pleasantly full with candidates and supporters from all parts of the Diocese. Amongst those present where Bill Hargreaves and Julie Malone from this parish who have faithfully been following a course of enquiry about the Cathoic Faith and have now decided to formally seek entry into Communion with the Church. Their reception will take place at the Easter Vigil. In the meantime we keep them firmly in our prayers.
