Rite of Election

Winter / Spring 2024

We congratulate the over 300 new members of the elect from the parishes listed below who participated in the Archdiocesan Rite of Election ceremony at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on the First Sunday of Lent, February 18, 2024 with our Vicar General, Msgr. Joseph LaMorte.

We thank everyone who participated in this year’s Archdiocesan Rite of Election. It was a great testimony to the work of the Holy Spirit within our many parish communities throughout the Archdiocese of New York.

And so, to show his ongoing pastoral support and concern for our Elect, His Eminence, Cardinal Timothy Dolan invites all Archdiocesan Neophytes and newly confirmed RCIA candidates and newly received to the annual Archdiocesan Neophyte Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on the sixth Sunday of Easter, May 5, 2024 at 10:15am.

For more information on the Archdiocesan Neophyte Mass please go to:

May we continue to pray for our Elect as they journey through this Lenten season. 

May our catechumens always remember the day of their election and be grateful for the blessings they have received from heaven.

May their teachers, sponsors and godparents be living examples of the Gospel.

…and may their fellow parishioners, families and friends continue to help them follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit.

We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
