Is there a better way to receive candidates than this?
Click here to check out a description of the process used in a small, rural parish to welcome two baptized candidates into full communion. It looks pretty good to me. I loved this line:
We reflected long and hard on the appropriate moment for reception, and decided against using any form of combined rite at the Easter Vigil – “Ëœanything that would equate candidates for reception with those who are catechumens is to be absolutely avoided’. (RCIA 391 UK) – choosing rather to go with the very simple ceremony of the Rite of Reception within Mass.
What do you think? Any suggestions for improvement? Anything you would have done differently in your parish?
