Children’s RCIA a hot topic in Springfield and Belleville

    I,too, would love to hear from others how children’s RCIA has had implications for all sacramental catechesis. From my experience, I can say a few things about implications:
    1)Conversion – If we are asking conversion of child catechumens, and if all catechesis is based upon the baptismal catechumenate, then I believe all sacramental catechesis should call children to conversion. Albeit, a conversion that is appropriate for their age. I find that too often, sacramental catechesis is more of an instruction on a particular sacrament that happens at a particular grade level. I believe that children’s RCIA challenges us to make all sacramental catechesis a process of conversion that engages the parents and family as a whole.
    2) Liturgical catechesis – Liturgical catechesis, is such an foundational element of children’s RCIA that it can inspire and inform all sacramental catechesis. More specifically, I believe that doing mystagogical catechesis after the celebration of the sacraments is an essential piece for all sacramental catechesis with children – and their families! And, the whole parish for that matter!
    Those are just two of the implications that I see. What are your thoughts?
