  • June 8: Precatechumenate - Also called the Period of Evangelization or Inquiry. We will discuss what this period looks like and what we focus on during this period. We will also look at the principal involved in discerning when an Inquirer is ready to move into the next period. 

  • June 15: Catechumenate - We will begin with the Rite of Acceptance, and we will discuss this period as a period of apprenticship in discipleship. Using the four pillars of catechesis, prayer, community and apostolic activities we will give an example of how a catechumenate session might be conducted.

  • June 22: Purification & Enlightenment - The Lenten Period before the Sacraments of Initiation are received.

  • June 29: Mystagogy - We will begin with the Easter Vigil – how it should be celebrated. Then we will look at the period after the Initiation and what those sessions should focus on – how do we keep them interested enough to come back.
