  1. Last month, with the arrival of a new pastor and full implementation of our parish in a newly formed parish region of 3 geographically close parishes, my pastor wanted to figure out a way to have RCIA present in all three parishes. Right now and for the foreseeable future, Sunday Mass with dismissal, and catechetical sessions take place at one parish. But now, once a month the RCIA goes on the road. We go to one of the other two parishes for RCIA Family Day (see Key 1 – take a Sunday off every month). All catechumens, candidates, their families, parents of children catechumens, sponsors, godparents get together for a intergenerational activity for about an hour before Mass.Each family group sits together to take part in the activity. Then we all go to Mass and dismiss catechumens. The first one went off without a hitch, and even catechumens who don’t have children in RCIA enjoyed it. The goal is to do some sort of activity that breaks open the message of the Gospel and fosters faith sharing and discussion among each family group. The hard part is planning for all ages – not too difficult for children but not too childish for adults. And I want to involve parishioners to share their love of the Catholic faith, parish life, etc.
