  1. Love the last one!
    Happy New Year to you, TeamRCIA.
    Thanks for the great work you do.
    Peace and joy, love and hope from the Land of Oz.

  2. I did my doctoral thesis at CTU on the parish as an initiating community. The first parish job I had after that was reasonably open to collaboration with me and the RCIA team — but I got laid off for financial reasons after 2 years, so I don’t know if what I started was able to continue. After a few years I began working at a smaller parish — around 400 families — mostly older people who had been helping with various things for years, very little of which included RCIA. I inherited a weary team and a parish culture that felt old and tired. You are stirring me up to at least noticing that I’m not doing what I so blithely wrote about 17 years ago in my thesis. Of course RCIA is only one part of a very large job description (we have 4 1/2 staff people, I have about 4 responsibilities besides RCIA, and a small team of helpers.) Plus I’m older than I was when I wrote what I was supposed to be doing. I’m not sure what New Year’s resolution I should be making, but I thought it might be a good idea to address weariness and lack of resources — or lack of imagination? Thanks.
