Apr 22: All in the Family – RCIA in the Region/Cluster (Ms. Leisa Anslinger & panel)
The challenges and opportunities for a regional/cluster approach to adult initiation. How will RCIA work best in a Family of Parishes?
May 6: Accompaniment (Mr. Nicholas Hardesty)
RCIA coordinators are right to ensure that their candidates and catechumens receive the word of faith “whole and entire, in all its rigor and vigor”. Yet, if we’re not careful, our focus on catechesis can come at the expense of real relationship-building and a pastoral approach. We’ll explore how to prioritize accompaniment in the catechumenal process while still passing on the faith well.
May 20: Breaking Up is Hard to Do – New Approaches to Forming Candidates (Mr. Jeremy Helmes & panel)
Non-Catholic Christians should be formed and ritualized in their own way, not the same as catechumens. How to do this with limited resources, limited people, etc.
