Is your RCIA open all year-round? Are we catechizing for knowledge or understanding?

  1. I truly support this stance. It certainly goes beyond information -giving Crucial to RCIA is the formative aspect. Helping the catechumens understand the why’s and wherefore of a particular teaching makes RCIA more meaningful and appreciated.

  2. One of the challenges is that we tend to look to a “perfect resource” that we can proceed step by step through the tenets on the faith, rather than look to our own understanding and connect with the understanding of the seekers . So why do we do the academic model? Because most catechisms in my opinion rely on their own experience of what it means to “ learn” – an acedemic model designed for children and youth, rather than an adult learning model.
    Excited to hear more about your pyramid of understanding, Nick!

    1. Hi Michael. Thanks for your comment. This is one of John McGlynn’s posts. He contributes something about once a month. (The author names are at the top of each post.) I’m excited to hear more about the pyramid of understanding also!
