I spoke briefly with my priest today (I've attended 3 Vespers services and 2 Liturgy services up until now) about becoming a catechumen.
We didn't have much time to speak, and it was difficult for me to understand what he said with everything going on around us. I'm going to ask him again, for clarification, but, from you good people- what can I expect to happen? I have not seen these things happen before.
I just became a catechumen last week. Basically, at some point during the service (for me it was Sunday Liturgy, but I've also heard of people being received to the catechumenate at Vespers), probably near the end, the priest will call you to the front of the nave. He will then pray some prayers over you, asking God to unite you to the Church, to remove far from you your former delusion, etc.
Then you're a catechumen! So far, not much has changed for me day-to-day, but soon catechism classes will start up, and then I imagine I'll be busy until they end in, I think, April.
