Life in Christ
2023 RCIA Lecture Notes
At the local church's RCIA series last week, I gave a lecture on the "Life in Christ". This was the last formal lecture that I would be giving to the candidates for the RCIA program in the local church. I was tasked with helping the candidates understand how to live a life of faith in Christ. I discussed how to remain focused on God, how to serve our neighbor, and how to live a life of virtue and grace.
In previous years, when I gave the lecture, I would use material from the "Making Disciples" book instead of the United States Catholic Catechisms for Adults book. This is the first time I have given a lecture using the United States Catholic Catechisms for Adults book. I felt that the material in the United States Catholic Catechisms for Adults book was more up-to-date and comprehensive and would be more beneficial for students. I also wanted to introduce them to the updated version of the catechism so they could become more familiar with it.
Similarly to what I've done with previous brochures, I've included my instructor notes, as well as classroom handouts, in order for teachers to prepare for their classes as well as students who wish to learn more about the subject.
My personal RCIA library contains all of the class notes that I have prepared for the RCIA class that you can find on my website.
