Network Papers

This is an occasional series of papers reflecting on aspects of the Rite and its implementation. As well as the exploration of a topic there are questions for group discussion which might be used by an RCIA Team.

  1. Reflections on the common experience of neophytes becoming non Church-going Catholics (pdf)
    • Many groups experience the phenomenon of people following the whole of the RCIA process but then ‘disappearing’ from parish life in the following year. This paper looks at some of the reasons for this, what a group might do to address the issue and research from the US which questions the figures.
