Dear Coordinators and Catechists,

Peace be with you. We are pleased to invite you to the following RCIA Workshop:

RCIA Workshop : Catechetical Aspect of RCIA

#OF SESSION: One (1)

Date:  10 April 2021 (Saturday)
Time:  9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Mode: Online


Contrary to the usual understanding, the catechetical aspect of RCIA is not limited to the catechist (either priest or lay person) presenting a syllabus of topics to the catechumens. Through this workshop, we hope that RCIA team members will have a better understanding that in teaching Christ as a Person (rather than a subject matter), we seek to initiate one into a relationship with Him and into a journey of conversion. The catechetical aspect of Christian Initiation extends to the RCIA team members helping the catechumens learn the faith by discipleship, within the Christian community, through the witnesses of the catechists and sponsors, by apprenticeship, etc.  

Participants will be given an opportunity to formulate strategies to address the catechetical needs unique to each period of the process for the parish. The areas for discussion include:

  • Building an RCIA team to support the catechetical aspect of RCIA, 
  • Ensuring a proper complementary balance of ‘catechist-sponsor’ working relationship in your RCIA process,
  • Understanding the essential elements of the baptismal catechumenate as proposed by the new Directory for Catechesis
  • Formulating strategies to address the catechetical needs of the catechumens

Note:   Participants will be given pre-workshop materials in preparation for the workshop.

  • RCIA coordinators
  • RCIA core Team Members
  • RCIA catechists
  • RCIA sponsors
  • Catholics interested in the RCIA process

*Waived by Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Singapore
