RCIA Resources to help you launch your Neophytes
into a lifetime of active parish involvement!

candle lighting sending forth from retreat

You’ve spent months passing on to them the teachings of the Catholic Church, its faith, its values, and its practices. Now your Neophytes are alive in the faith and eager to learn more. Your Mystagogy classes are your last chance to send them forth into a lifetime of self-motivated, on-going faith formation. Our hand-outs are designed to help you succeed at this.

Licenses on this page:
Our RCIA resources may be used indefinitely without the need to renew your distribution license, as long as you continue to use them only in RCIA in one parish. (For additional uses in the parish, please order a Whole Parish License when available or additional Small Group Licenses. For example, hand-outs ordered for RCIA may be used year after year, but for unlimited printing throughout your parish, the Whole Parish License is required.)
