The Concord Pastor wondered aloud the the other day about what requirements for membership we might list in our parish bulletins. He had run across a Unitarian Web site that got him wondering:
I Googled the church and in perusing their website I came across the following with regards to membership in their parish:
Becoming a member of the congregation involves basically four things:
(1) Fundamental agreement
with our principles and purposes;
(2) Regular and ongoing participation in Sunday worship and other congregational activities;
(3) Participation in the work of the church
(4) Financial support as each is able.
And I wondered, “Can you imagine walking into a Catholic church and finding something like that on the front of the parish bulletin?”

What do you think? What would happen in your parish if you posted such a list on your Web site or in your bulletin? How does this align with Paragraph 75 of the RCIA?
