Please join the diocesan Catechumenate Committee as we prepare and look forward to another fruitful harvest, laboring in the joys of God’s vineyards. Each of us, as masters and workers, needs to nourish ourselves at this time of year. We expectantly look forward to a full harvest from our catechists and catechumens, knowing that each year, the vines we plant with love and care, require us to guide and nurture them so we are rewarded with an abundant fruitful harvest.

“No wine is better than the fruit used to make it.”

As part of the diocesan Liturgical Commission, the Catechumenate Committee's role is to assist parishes in the formation and implementation of an effective RCIA process through offering assistance, support, and the knowledge of an experienced team, some of whom have experienced this process themselves. Let the diocesan Catechumenate Committee help answer your questions and concerns, for example:
  • “How can I help my team grow spiritually and confidently?”
  • “What is my Faith calling me to do?”
  • “How can we encourage others to join us in the fields?”
