A key principle of the RCIA process is that it is infused with the Paschal Mystery. It is relatively easy for us to tell the seekers that the Paschal Mystery is the “life, death, and resurrection” of Jesus. But how do we talk about the Paschal Mystery in a way that really makes sense to them and converts their hearts?
We must tell our own stories of death and resurrection. And that can be difficult. It takes practice, and it requires a bit of courage. But the actual skills of telling our stories are not that difficult to master. In this webinar, Nick Wagner and Diana Macalintal are going to discuss these questions:
- Why is it important to tell our dying and rising story?
- What do we mean by dying and rising (Paschal Mystery)?
- How do we tell our dying and rising stories?
- What would happen if we told stories like Jesus did?

This is the third in a series of webinars in which we will discuss the six core principles of the RCIA. The six principles can be applied to any faith formation process, not just the catechumenate. So be sure to invite all the parish catechists, the marriage and baptismal prep teams, and anyone who guides others on their faith journey..
Although TeamRCIA webinars are designed for parish use, we know that they can also be valuable for diocesan training. With your diocesan use access purchase, you will receive the link to the recording. You may use that link to show the recording (as many times as you like for as long as you like) from a single computer and location within your diocese, such as a chancery office or a parish, for each viewing.
