We all agree that the community needs to be involved in the lives of the catechumens. So we make bulletin and Mass announcements explaining the rites and the initiation process, hoping the parishioners will “get” their responsibility to initiate these seekers. Then, although catechumens, candidates, sponsors, and team members form a tight-knit community, parishioners still wonder who these people are with their rituals that make the Mass long, and most of the newly initiated still disappear from the parish after Easter.
