RCIA class 2018-2019 ✝️


#1

Well, it’s that time of year! Anyone else out there starting RCIA classes? Are you following a particular program? Using particular materials? Please share!

I’m very excited to FINALLY be starting classes after all this time!


#2

Great to hear. All the best to everyone starting RCIA!


#3

Great to hear that you’re starting RCIA, I hope it’s Catholic enough!


#4

Well, we will be using the new RCIA program from the Thomistic Institute called Credo. I have no reason to expect that it will be anything other than Catholic.


#5

Good for you, mrsdizzyd!

@Agatha_Sicily, where are you?


#6

Oh that sounds Catholic alright!


#7

Yea! @mrsdizzyd. This will be my second year as a catechist and we use the Benzinger Foundations in Faith more or less as a guide. We don’t use any workbooks or anything like that. Keep us updated!


#8

I’m here!!! I went to my first RCIA class tonight. We got The New Catholic Answer Bible and the second edition of the CCC. It was a good experience, I made a friend and we discussed the idea of forming a Catholic group on campus (we don’t have one here) with the RCIA coordinator.


#9

Yay! Sounds like you are well on your way. I was wondering if you had had a chance to contact the local parish yet. :+1:


#10

I’ll definitely try to provide updates. I hope you have a good year with your candidates and catechumens!


#11

best news ever


#12

I am beginning my 8th year of teaching. We use the Symbolon program and have added three additional lessons on the Eucharist, and three on Reconciliation. We are called to a lifetime of formation, and these two sacraments are the surest way to keep forming ourselves. We will also be stressing the spiritual benefits of Adoration.


#13

God bless everyone who is taking RCIA classes. May your journey be glorious! Amen.


#14

I am starting RCIA in September in the UK along with my husband and my two youngest children. We are former Baptists but have been attending Mass for about a year.


#15

Looking forward to welcoming you all home Easter 2019.


#16

How wonderful to be coming in as a family! I hope you enjoy it.


#17

As opposed to the Methodist RCIA program many Catholic Churches have adopted?


#18

I have been considering RCIA for a number of years now but must say in all honesty I’m not ready to take this step just yet. Maybe next year.


#19

You know you can take RCIA even if you aren’t ready to receive the sacraments, right?


#20

I became aware of that recently, yes. It’s the social involvement I shy away from. :slight_smile:
