RCIA: Sacramental Preparation
The RCIA process is designed to serve the Holy Spirit’s work of conversion, deeply involving a parish community in the shared work of offering the goodness and graces of the Catholic Church to all souls. This course, through exploring the three aspects of the process, is a comprehensive walk through Mother Church’s vision for initiation of new children into her fold and into relationship with the Trinity, and how to pragmatically and effectively implement this in a modern parish setting.
