Workshop Presenter


Conducted in a retreat-like manner, this training event will offer participants an experiential understanding of the RCIA as they walk through its periods and rites. Together they will participate in catechesis, ritual celebration, and apostolic witness adapted from the vision of the RCIA. Many involved in the Church’s initiation ministry have not shared in the experience of the catechumens and candidates; this institute will help the participants understand the RCIA from both sides.
