Children in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adult (RCIA) Process


The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults requires a different approach than mainstream faith formation. In this workshop, we will consider the RCIA process adapted for children, identify who belongs in the process and model effective sessions for children and their families. The main resources for this workshop will be the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults and Children of the Light.
