Is it appropriate to have the Rites of Welcome and Acceptance during the Easter Season? We have inquirers who have been faithful in attendance and definitely have the beginnings of faith who began their journey just before Lent. It is likely that our pastor will be away from the end of May. We wanted to do this at a Sunday liturgy.

It is certainly not inappropriate. If your pastor were not leaving, I’d suggest waiting until after Easter Season so as to keep more attention on the neophytes. But it is also important for your pastor to be a part of this major parish event. My recommendation would be to go ahead with the acceptance and welcome.
