Facilitator Training for Implementation of
Lenten Scrutinies: Our God Calls Us to Conversion
(6.5 hours) Each parish purchases in advance one CD-R copy of Lenten Scrutinies: Our God Calls Us to Conversion @ $25.00, plus postage and handling. Participants will gain skills and confidence to facilitate both programs: RCIA and parish renewal. Host parish or diocese provides lunch.
Retreat for RCIA Teams
(Friday evening through Saturday afternoon) This retreat's objective is to improve effective RCIA implementation: 1) Developing a shared vision of team ministry; 2) Offering catechesis that blends doctrinal and scriptural content with life experiences; 3) Facilitating the process of on-going conversion for everyone involved. Preliminary consultation will discern specific team needs and expectations. Host parish or diocese provides lunch.
(Two Day Workshop) Usually sponsored by a diocese, this "train the trainer" experience gives you parish lector coordinator skills to train lectors, give constructive feedback, and coordinate the parish proclamation team more effectively. Usually sponsored by a diocese, the workshop is held at a retreat center or diocesan facility, with overnight and meal accommodations.
