A collection of beautifully composed texts for dismissing catechumens and baptized-yet-uncatechized candidates following the homily each Sunday. Inside this handy book you'll find a text for each Sunday of Year A, Year B, and Year C, as well as dismissal texts for solemnities and feasts that are celebrated when they occur on Sundays during the liturgical year. These texts follow the general formula for dismissals found in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and are inspired by the scripture readings of the day and the liturgical season. 6x9 paperback with large, easy-to read print and liturgy-worthy foil-stamped cover. Included CD-ROM allows you to print all texts as 8 1/2 x 11 pages and place in your own ceremonial binder.

”In clear, concise, and poetic language, Jerry has crafted ritual blessings that echo the Scriptures of the Sundays and feasts that are, like good liturgy, both source and summit of the catechumens' conversion experience...Any presider or director who relies on this resource can be confident that the dismissal will be effective, liturgically appropriate, and prayerful, while the catechist will find the seeds of reflection and catechesis in the dismissal rite itself.” --- Miriam Malone, consultant for liturgical and catechetical formation in parishes and dioceses, writer in the areas of liturgical formation with focus on Christian initiation, and member of the Team and Board of The North American Forum on the Catechumenate.

”The texts in We Send You Forth seek to connect through ritual language, in the words of Galipeau's introduction, 'what [the catechumens and candidates] heard at the liturgy with what they will soon be pondering'...his dismissals make a fine contribution in setting the tone for a lectionary-based initiation process...Galipeau's arrangements of the dismissal serve to remind all present in the assembly --- catechumen, candidate, and fully initiated---of the importance of hearing, listening, and responding to the Word of God proclaimed.” --- Rev. James G. Sabak, OFM, doctoral candidate at The Catholic University of America, Washington, DC, in Pastoral Music, April-May 2006
