  1. I agree with you about RCIA being more than just coming to classes. We are faced in our parish this year with many young people working and having a difficult time coming to classes.

    What on line resources would you recommened for people who can not make class every week?

    Thank you for you do for our RCIA .

    1. I just want to tell you how much I appreciate all you are doing. I have now been retired for 23 years and miss being involved in this ministry. I had been in RCIA ministry since the very beginning with Jim Dunning and Christiane. I wish I could still be involved but energy does not permit. I have helped with some one on one tho. Blessings and thanks for all you do. You help fill the hole when NA Forum had to close down.

  2. Thank you for your ideas. We too have issues with some people not being able to attend RCIA sessions and church events, but we have really tried to make the RCIA sessions engaging, informative and worth the time of everyone involved. What we have found is that people will rearrange schedules to come to sessions they find worth while! We do also use online, video, and individual conference time when needed. But, these resources are also available to anyone that attends. We feel the face to face and community meetings are vital for growth in the family aspect. It is amazing how many questions can be answered over a 20 minute meeting a restaurant while enjoying a soda!

    Thank you all! Your posts, articles and webinars are awesome!

  3. In our small cluster RCIA, we usually have only one Inquirer at a time. This year we have a woman with a handicapped child who cannot be left with babysitters. So we invited her to bring the child to our RCIA Sessions. Sometimes she even has to bring her other children too. We have a play area and it has worked out wonderfully! The children are a blessing!
