  2. I can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate your website and helpfulness. We are using Faith, Life, and Creed and find it amazingly thorough and a great gift as we try to keep the call to conversion before us at every session and dismissal rite, and the other rituals. I also greatly appreciate the webcasts that you offer. My ministry in RCIA has truly been enriched by all that you offer us. And congratulations on your new website.

    And just a note, two years ago we changed our policy and only children who are unbaptized are in our Rite of Christian Initiation for children. We presently have five children. Before 2008 we were having 35-40 children who were catching up with their sacraments. This year we have 40 students who are catching up with sacraments, grades 3-8.
    Thanks for your reminders to stay true to the ritual.

    A blessed Advent and peace filled Christmas!

  3. A Very Merry Christmas to all of the staff at Team RCIA. You have been such a blessing to all of us in Initiation Ministry through all of your hard work and dedication to the process. We have benefited greatly from the Webinars and Website and look forward to continuing the journey with you throughout the coming year.

  4. Thanks for the Christmas Season wishes. I wish the same for all of you. Thanks to Sister Miriam for her classes she held here in the East Bay on RCIA a few years ago. Her inspiration has made our Rite’s more meaningful. I have truly enjoyed your Website and Webinars. They are so full of information and encouragement that I use a lot of it in our sessions and continue to improve each year. I’m looking forward to the session on Descernment you might be having next year. Again Thank you for all that you do for us newbees.

    Your Christmas greetings captured the essence of this special time of celebration and, like the offerings you bring our way throughout the year, your message has been inspirational and an invitation to reflect deeply on the meaning of this season. Thank you – may Christmas be for you all you invite Chrismas to be for us!

  6. Merry and Holy Christmas to you all. I have met you Nick at a couple of Forum Institutes but it is nice to put a face to the names of the rest of Team RCIA. In these days of budget shortfalls and long distances (I live in Montana) it is great to feel connected to other Initiation ministers and Team RCIA is a wonderful resource.

  7. Thanks for all the resources Team RCIA offers. Not only is the site helpful to me but it is a great training resource for my team. Thank you for your much needed contribution to this ministry. Peace, Loyes Spayd

  8. Well, this was just fun! Thank you for the gifts you are…thank you for the gifts you share, and thank you for reminding us that life in Christ is joyful!

  9. Merry Christmas to all of you as well.

    Our RCIA team loves your newsletters and electronic lesson plans. You have enriched our process in many ways. RCIA lived in both the adult and childrens ministries is a blessed and beautiful experience. We have 14 adults and 26 children presently preparing for sacraments of initiation. Thank you for all your help. We wish you all much joy.
