There has been much talk of larger than usual numbers of adults entering the Church this Easter. And not just the usual 150,000 or so in the US:

3,000 will be received in Hong Kong

650 will be received in Vietnam

There's been considerable talk about the 2,062 in the Archdiocese of Atlanta

But the 3,000 new Catholics in Dallas easily beats that and Houston's nearly 2000 catechumens and candidates practically matches Atlanta's numbers.

1,100 in the Archdiocese of Denver

675 adults and their sponsors filled our little Cathedral here in Colorado Springs for two Rite of Election Masses.

1,600 in the Archdiocese of New York

Over 1,000 in St. Petersburg, Florida

774 are joining us Diocese of Arlington, Virginia

The Archdiocese of Cincinnati will see 1049 catechumens and candidates- which is typical of the numbers they have seen over the past several years.

895 in Philly

1,400 in San Diego

and many, many more in the nearly 3,000 Catholic dioceses throughout the world. Only God knows how many are on that journey this year.

Are you one of them? Do you know someone who will be entering the Church at Easter? What's happening in your diocese or parish?

If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.
