When you describe your catechumenate process in your parish, do you describe it first of all as a giant conversion machine? If you’re doing it the way the rite asks us to, that’s what it is. The entire vision of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is focused through the lens of conversion.
The task of RCIA team members is to constantly foster conversion for the seekers. While we can’t do conversion, we can create environments that are more likely to lead to conversion. In this webinar, Nick Wagner and Diana Macalintal are going to discuss these questions:
- Why is conversion important?
- What are the six signs of conversion?
- How do we foster conversion?
- What would happen if we made conversion the focus of our initiation processes?

This is the fourth 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.
