In my experience, different priests have different ways of preparing the catechumen.  I would talk to the priest who is guiding you through the catechumenate, as he knows you better than any of us here.  And congratulations!!! :-)

Be open, be honest, and most importantly, ask your priest as Ioannis said!

Christ is risen!
Cristo ha resucitado!
Христос Воскресе!
Χριστός Ανέστη!
 المسيح قام
