Two things I have come across on the web in the last week: something to think about and some resources.
is a blog post by Jerry Galipeau which goes to the heart of what is the RCIA about: a relationship with Christ and/or an introduction to the teachings of the Catholic Church. Now it isn’t either or but it is a matter of perspective – see the last blogpost on Jesus at the heart of the process.
His starting point is two questions:
- The RCIA in my parish is…
- The goal of the RCIA in my parish is…
and then invites people to reflect on what they do and what they aspire to do.
This is a website by Joyce Donahue which brings together useful resources from around the web.These include a series of videos introducing the Sacraments and looking at First Communion liturgies — go and explore
