V. Adaptations by the Bishop

66. It pertains to the bishop for his own diocese:

  1. to set up the formation program of the catechumenate and to lay down norms according to local needs (see no. 44);
  2. to decree whether and when, as circumstances warrant, the whole rite of initiation may be celebrated outside the customary times (see no. 58);
  3. to dispense, on the basis of some serious obstacle, from one scrutiny or, in extraordinary circumstances, even from two (see no. 240);
  4. to permit the simple rite to be used in whole or in part (see no. 240);
  5. to depute catechists who are truly worthy and properly prepared to give the exorcisms and blessings (see nos. 44, 48);
  6. to preside at the rite of election and to ratify, personally or through a delegate, the admission of the elect (see no. 44).
