Only those who are to be initiated into the Church at Easter 2013 should celebrate the Rite of Election.
You may want to consider celebrating the Rite of Sending in your parish at one of your Masses the weekend of the Rite of Election. This Rite is found in the RCIA ritual book, appendix 1, chapter 2. Notice the distinction between unbaptized (catechumens) and baptized (candidates). Use the full rite if you have people in both categories. If you have baptized persons only, begin with the Presentation of Candidates.
Please note that each RCIA Coordinator is asked to bring cookies, brownies, etc. for the reception. Please make every effort to do this. The hosting parish is counting on it.
You may submit the Reservation Form electronically by completing the form online and clicking the "SUBMIT" button (see the link in the right column of this page). If you have more candidates/catechumens than will fit in the space allotted, complete the form, submit, and then complete again with the remaining names and submit once more
Please note that you'll need to have a newer version of Adobe Reader installed on your computer in order to access the Reservation Form and other forms listed in the right column of this page. Click here to download a free copy of Reader.
