Who is dismissed? Who actually goes out from the Mass?
Only the unbaptized catechumens and their prayer leader leave the liturgy. An exception might be made for baptized uncatechized candidates for full
communion, but all baptized people have a right to remain for the full liturgy.
Sponsors, other team members, and candidates who would not be considered “uncatechized” are not dismissed. Catholics who are only preparing for confirmation are not dismissed.
