The Rite of Election marks a transition in the catechumenate, from one period into another which immediately precedes Baptism. This period of final preparation for Baptism is marked by the testimony of godparents and the enrollment of names. Catechumens are asked to sign the Book of Elect in their respective parish prior to coming to the Rite of Election celebration. The Book will be presented to the Bishop during the celebration for his signature.
