Overview

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is concerned with forming adult catechumens into believing, praying, and serving members of the Church community.

The second of the three stages of the process is the Rite of Election or Enrollment, the ritual during which the elected place their names in a "Book of the Elect" as assign of their willingness to prepare themselves for full incorporation into the Church.

The environment in which this takes place requires that the book used in the enrollment be an appropriate one, not only a suitable design for a sanctuary book but also be sturdily bound to withstand repeated handling and be able to become part of the lasting parish records.

This Book of the Elect fulfills is an enrollment book for the RCIA. The deep red leather-like cover is richly gold-embossed on the front and spine. The interior features two-color art along with lined pages for signatures on the right. The book is sturdily bound, and acid-free paper is used for a long life.
