I'm in RCIA and today we celebrated (is that the right word) the first Scrutiny.

Let me backtrack for a moment: I learned the Nicene Creed on my own a few weeks ago from the Catechism. Since learning it, I noticed that I would get "lost" from the rest of the congregation at the same spot where we recite "For us men and for our salvation."

I could never figure out why I was messing up until today at the first Scrutiny. We were lined up in front of the altar and were given cards to read from so that we could recite the creed along with the congregation. When we got to the part I have trouble with, I realized that it wasn't me; the card omitted the word "men." I can only assume that the parish, being as liberal as it is, omits this word purposely (it is very, very liberal).

Is that even allowed? I've been witnessing things at this parish that I do not agree with, and have already decided that I will only attend Mass there every once in a while once I'm baptized. Some examples include the head pastor's dog sleeping on the altar during Mass and another pastor having us sit on the altar during daily Mass because there's only 3 or 4 people there (I only attended daily Mass once there because of this...it didn't feel right). I don't know what are liturgical abuses and what aren't, but I did start reading the GIRM so that I can have an idea.

Anyways, thanks in advance for the help. I don't want to sound like I'm judging the parish as I'm just a new member to the Church and have questions.
