B-04 Refl ection on Mystery: A Formation Process for the RCIA
This workshop will view the whole RCIA process from the perspective of mystagogy: reflection on life, reflection on the Word, reflection on ritual, reflection on sacraments. It will present an adaptable format of liturgical catechesis that respects the human and spiritual development of those making the journey to the sacraments of initiation or to full communion. It will help participants to grow in a deeper awareness that in RCIA formation catechesis is at the service of liturgical celebration.
