Catechesis in the Children's Catechumenate
Presented by Rita Burns Senseman
February 24, March 3, and 10, 2022
1:00pm - 2:30pm ET
$45 per computer

This workshop requires 20 registered participants by February 13, 2022 to proceed.

Our Virtual Workshops are conducted on Adobe Connect, a web-based online meeting platform. Participants are asked to utilize a computer for these virtual workshops and to download the desktop application prior to their session. If you use a mobile device (phone or tablet), LTP’s tech team will be unable to assist you.

In this three-part Digital Institute, participants will receive practical ways to address catechesis accommodated to the liturgical year with child catechumens and their families. The presenter will invite us to consider ways, outside the confines of the classroom, that will bring the children into communion with Christ. Special attention will be given to dismissal catechesis, intergenerational formation, and ministry to parents and guardians. Participants will be invited to take part in training exercises that may stretch their understanding of catechesis in the children’s experience of the catechumenate.

Recommended Resources


This new resource recognizes and acknowledges that children of varying ages and states of faith formation undergo a variety of paths to Christian initiation. Using the rite itself, this book will help RCIA coordinators, catechists, and directors of religious education prepare children and their families to celebrate the rites of the Church and the sacraments of initiation. You will find: parish-tested models and sample sessions; appendixes on how to prepare and lead child catechesis, and how to celebrate the liturgical rites; answers to frequently asked questions, and a glossary of terms.
