I’ve been attending a parish that is located just down the street since July-August and participating in RCIA since September with the intention of joining the Church. I feel so blessed to be on the road to Christ’s Church after finding myself at odds with my previous churches (Many Non-Denoms and an Episcopal). A few weeks back I learned that there is a Mission not too far away from me (15 minutes) that celebrates the Tridentine Mass. Obviously, if I attend, it would be my first EF Mass and I’m a bit confused regarding something. I read that there are two parts to the Mass, the “Mass of the Catechumens” and the “Mass of the Faithful”, would I be obliged to leave after the Mass of the Catechumens as I have not been Confirmed? I have also read warnings on CAF regarding the SSPX and am not quite sure how to tell if this particular mission/parish is in full communion with Rome, if somebody could take a peek at their website and let me know, I would be very thankful.
