  1. My name is Anton and I attended your presentation in Melbourne.

    One point that intrigued me was the word “Community”

    I felt that our RCIA team did not do “Community” well. Yes our timetable included guest speakers from some of our various parish activities. However your presentation made me think further and I will recommend to our team that we physically arrange and take the candidates one at a time to the parish activites such as:
    – parish council meeting
    – the local Vincent de Paul meeting
    – the travelling home rosary
    to mention a few.

    Would be pleased to have your thoughts.

    Kind regards

    Anton

  2. Like Anton, I also attended the RCIA Day in Melbourne, to my great benefit.

    And like him, the No 1 learning for me was the importance of getting the Parish community involved in RCIA (and the Catechumens/Candidates involved with the Parish).

    One of the suggestions that really appealed to me was arranging for each of the Catechumens/Candidates to be invited home once a month for a meal with a Parish family. This is easy to organise and is following Jesus’ example (didn’t he spend half his life at meals and banquets, and the other half talking about them in parables!)

    Sorry, this comment has little to do with digital media – I blame Anton for the diversion!!

    Thank you Diana and Nick for sharing your talents and enthusiasm with us last weekend.

  3. Thanks for this ‘New Tools for RCIA’; I appreciated how you coupled the example with the ‘Rite number’.
    My only encounter with social media is ‘facebook’ and ‘pinterest’ (sometimes) and these avenues I use to share articles that speak to my heart.

    Moments of holiness – I have recently connected to the Ignatian Spirituality – dotMagis – and this has opened an avenue that reminds me throughout the day to be aware of God’s presence and to practice the Examen at night.

  4. We have been searching for a way to pass on the information that catechumens and candidates seek; information that can get in the way of the formation process to which we dovote our time together. Last year we tried a forum board with mixed results. This year we may try a “closed” Face Book site. Another option is a blog. All three can be used to pass on information and for participants to share their thoughts and questions.

  5. I am 80 years old and just learned to text. I agree that social media is the way to reach and retain our 30 and under aged people. We need to remind everyone that God loves Us and that every experience he gives and every person he puts in our lives is perfect preparation for a future only he can see. We should all try to leave our comfort zones. May God bless us all and keep us in the palm of his hand.
