RCIA: Letters to Julie
Dear Teresa, I'm so glad to hae someone experienced to turn to for advice. We have a few new people in our RCIA team, and I would like to give them some basic formation on the Christian life, as this is what our catechumens and candidates are seeking. I’m not quite sure where to start though. What are your thoughts? Yours hopefully, Julie Dear Julie, How lovely to hear from you again, and I am so pleased to hear your team is growing. What a good idea to start your team’s training and formation with an introduction to the aspects of the Christian life! I suggest the best place to start is with this small scripture verse from Acts 2:42: ‘They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers’ (RSV). Christian Initiation, as you say, is to prepare someone for Christian life in all its dimensions.
