Workshops

Choose any 3 Workshops

  1. RCIA Basic Introduction Being pragmatic, an overview of the basics of RCIA and how it might evolve in a real parish situation
  2. Using Scripture in RCIA: how faith is caught and taught. The RCIA is a great source of wisdom to help us communicate the Gospel to the seekers of today
  3. Liturgy as formative: liturgical catechesis. Growing in participation in the liturgy is one of the core aspects of RCIA. How do we form participants for liturgy and how can we use the liturgy as a source for formation.
  4. RCIA in deanery or pastoral areas. For some this is a present reality, for others a future challenge: what are the opportunities?
  5. CICCA. (Christian Initiation for Children of Catechetical Age) Exploring how we can follow the vision and Spirit of the rite in varying pastoral situations for children between the ages of 7 and 14.
  6. Group Leadership Skills. ‘Where two or three are gathered in my name’. Exploring the ways in which Christ can be effectively communicated in small-group catechesis with a focus on facilitation
