It was requested that we meet once or twice a year with opportunity for training, questions, discussions as we grow our RCIA Teams with the things we learned at the WCC in June 2017. We will be focusing on the pre-inquiry Period as well as how to proactively involve the entire Parish Community in the RCIA journey.
