What’s included in your membership?
Online Courses: interactive, multimedia, complete
When you are ready for a systematic and intensive way to become the best RCIA minister you can be, these courses will give you pretty much everything you need.
If all you studied were these courses and the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults text, you would be more than super-ready to lead your community’s initiation process.
Your membership includes two comprehensive “master courses” that encompass the entirety of the initiation process and five “mini-courses,” shorter courses with a more focused attention on specific aspects of the initiation process.
As a member, you get access to all these courses plus any new courses that are added.

The training sessions offered in the online courses allowed us to move along at our own pace of acceptance of the new way of thinking and of the adjustment from a “program” to a “process.”
Our challenges were probably those of finding ways of making this a journey that the seeker wanted to continue on for a lifetime and not just a time frame, of being convicted enough to want to share with others what they had just experienced.
TeamRCIA has given our parish guidance, team training and instruction, suggestions, updates, and meaningful examples of how to involve the community in the process and what can happen when the whole parish becomes “team.”
