  Act of Election (Catechumens please stand)
Bishop: I now declare you to be members of the Elect, to be initiated into the Sacred Mysteries at the next Easter Vigil.
Catechumens: Thanks be to God/ Demos gracias a Díos
God is always faithful to those He calls: Now it is your duty, as it is ours, both to be faithful to Him in return and to strive courageous- ly to reach the fullness of truth, which your election opens up be- fore you.
Godparents, you have spoken in favor of these catechumens: Ac- cept them now as chosen in the Lord and continue to sustain them through your loving care and example, until they come to share in the sacraments of God’s life.
