Don’t wait until the last minute!
There’s an easier way for your diocese to get ready
for the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults
Prepare every catechumenate team in your diocese
Get all your catechumenate teams up to speed quickly. Help them know what is—and what isn’t—changing when the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults is published. And do it all whenever and wherever they want!
Help them discover the core vision of the rite
Your catechumenate teams will come away with a deeper understanding of the church’s vision for parishes as centers of evangelization and initiation. And you can give them a comprehensive study of that vision that they can learn and review as many times as they desire.
Show them how to refocus on conversion
Learning about the new translation is the perfect opportunity to help your catechumenate teams see how the progressive nature of the rites leads their seekers and parishioners into deep encounters with Jesus Christ.
Recommit your diocese to making lifelong disciples now
Once they understand how to discern the readiness of their seekers for lifelong discipleship, your catechumenate teams will no longer be frustrated with neophytes leaving soon after initiation. And you don’t have to wait to make that happen!
Make it happen in three easy steps
1: Purchase the video bundle for your diocese

Who can access the training videos?

How do I provide access?
After your purchase, we will send you a sign-up link for your parish teams. You can then provide that link to anyone in your diocese.
How long will the training videos be available?
The training videos will be available from the day of your purchase until one year after the publication of the new translation for the United States.
Can you send out the link for me?
Yes, if you provide us with a spreadsheet containing the names and email addresses of your parish team members. We will take care of the rest, notifying each team member individually about how they can access the training videos. We will handle the logistics to ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience for everyone involved.
Can I place the link on our diocesan website?
We would ask that you keep this link as private as possible and only share it directly via email or other private communication channels. This way, you can be confident that the access is limited to the intended recipients and avoids potential availability to individuals outside your diocese.
