Dismissal of Non-Catholics After Mass of the Catechumens

  • In ancient times, when the Mass of the Catechumens ended, and before the Offertory began, the deacon directed the Catechumens and all non-Catholics to leave.

    When did this change?  Were there any decrees ending this law or practice, or was it just a custom that ceased over time?  

    How would you respond to a Catholic today who says that it's sacrilegious for an unbeliever to attend Mass after the Mass of the Catechumens has ended?
