This weekend we will “send” our catechumen, Chase Barmer, to Bishop Kopacz for the Rite of Election at the Cathedral Sunday afternoon.

Please pray for Chase and our other catechumen, McKenzie Dant and Ann Hollingsworth, as well as our candidates, Sydney Andrews and Ray Powell, who will enter the Church at Easter.
