Bishop Emeritus Matthew H. Clark presided over the 2013 Rite of Election and Call to Conversion celebration Feb. 17 at Sacred Heart Cathedral. Parishes throughout the Diocese of Rochester presented their catechumens and candidates who were then affirmed by their Godparents, sponsors, the general assembly and the bishop who greeted each of them individually.
