Q: You recently answered a question about combining the rite of admission to candidacy for major orders with the installation of readers and acolytes. https://paulturner.org/combined-liturgies/. You said you didn’t know of anything forbidding it, but paragraph 3 of the introduction of the rite of admission says it cannot be combined with ordinations or either of the institution ceremonies.
A: You are correct. Thank you for writing. The rite of admission to candidacy may not be combined with the institution of lectors or acolytes.
