26. Exploring the Riches of the
Catechism as an Effective Tool
for the R.C.I.A. Process
With so much ground to cover in the catechumenal process, the
Catechism can be the perfect tool to prepare your sessions, to
use during your sessions, and even for the participants to delve
deeper on their own after the sessions. If you have hesitated to
crack open that “big green book”, this is the workshop for you!
Even if you are already familiar with the 4 parts of the Catechism, bring your own copy and a highlighter and spend some
time with the book that Blessed Pope John Paul declared to be
universally authoritative “a sure norm for teaching the faith.”
27. Learning Styles and Effective
Catechesis in the R.C.I.A.
If you have ever felt that some of your R.C.I.A. participants
were having a hard time with the presentation, it may be because
they have a different learning style. We can forget that even
adults can be audio or visual learners. This workshop will help
you to reach both types of learners and streamline your session
preparation. Effective catechesis can be boosted by a simple 1page summary of your topic. Come and learn a proven example
that helps to send them away excited for the next week.

23. Celebrating the Rites of
Christian Initiation
Parishes are missing out on an opportunity during Lent when the
RCIA is not part of the entire parish Lenten experience. This
workshop will study the richness of the rites of initiation and how
to celebrate them in the context of the Parish Sunday Mass.

101. Historia y Proceso del R.I.C.A.
El RICA es un proceso de conversión. Los cristianos se hacen, no
nacen, no hay nada automático o instantáneo en la iniciación de
adultos. Aunque la instrucción doctrinal es una parte del proceso,
la iniciación de adultos busca cambiar el corazón y transformar el
espíritu. La iniciación de adultos es de la comunidad cristiana que
inicia sus rangos a nuevos miembros, y por lo tanto debe
efectuarse en comunidad.
