The rites are not difficult to learn, but they do require careful attention. You have to spend some time with them thinking, praying, imagining about the best possible way to prepare your catechumens to celebrate these powerful moments in their formation.
It also helps to have a mentor—someone to guide you as you are contemplating and planning. And we have just the mentor for you….
Rita Ferrone has been helping parish communities discover the simple beauty and spiritual power of the catechumenate rituals for more than 30 years. She has a deep knowledge of the structure and flow of these rituals, and she has a gift for helping RCIA teams master these beautiful prayers.
And now you can spend a few hours with Rita, absorbing her wisdom, without leaving home! No airfare, no hotel registration, no uncomfortable conference room folding chairs.
