SUMMER RCIA TRAINING

Now that the Easter Season is over, it is time to start thinking about training your RCIA Team Members.  The slower pace of summer is a perfect time to take advantage of training in a retreat-like atmosphere.  RCIA in the Parish is an intensive two day experience to learn about and experience the rites and periods of RCIA.  Go to http://www.catholiccincinnati.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/RCIA2011Brochure.pdf for the information and registration brochure for this valuable experience for leaders, catechists, team members, musicians, deacons and priests.
