Two Rite of Election and Call to Conversion ceremonies were held March 13 at Rochester's Sacred Heart Cathedral and a third will be held March 20 at Horseheads' St. Mary Our Mother Church. Catechumens, those seeking initiation into the Catholic Church during the Easter Vigil, and candidates, those affirming their intention to join the Catholic Church, were presented to the assembly and recognized by Bishop Matthew H. Clark. These photos were captured during the early ceremony at Sacred Heart Cathedral. (Click here to view more photos from this event and/or buy prints.)
