What keeps you up at night? What makes you want to pull your hair out? RCIA is one of the most fulfilling ministries in the church. But it can sometimes make you crazy. Do you and your team struggle with any of these thorny issues?

  • The annulment didn’t come through in time for the Easter Vigil
  • You find out three weeks before the Vigil that one of the elect was previously married
  • You don’t have enough volunteers to lead dismissal sessions
  • You don’t have a big enough team for a year-round process
  • One of your candidates is not coming to Mass
  • The godparents live in another state (or another country!)
  • Neophytes don’t return for mystagogy
  • One of the elect discovers he was baptized as an infant

In this online workshop, Nick Wagner and Diana Macalintal are going to give you some practical tips for dealing with these and other vexing issues in the RCIA. In addition, we’ll talk about a problem-solving methodology you can use the next time something unexpected happens.

*Diocesan access
Although TeamRCIA webinars are designed for parish use, we know that they can also be valuable for diocesan training. With your diocesan registration, you will receive links to both the live webinar and the recording. You may use these links to show either the live webinar or the recording (as many times as you like) from a single computer and location for each viewing within your diocese, such as a chancery office or a parish.
