Annual RCIA Workshops
"Through the Doorway" offered on a Sunday in January.
"Wading Deeper" usually offered the last Friday/Saturday in July.
The Dioceses of Belleville and Springfield in Illinois will continue their collaborative efforts offering two RCIA workshops every year. However, beginning in January, 2018 and unfolding into the year 2020, the emphasis will be "Year-Round Catechumenate" with a different and growing focus at each workshop. This three-year plan will help pastors, liturgy committees, initiation teams, musicians, catechists and other ministers image, envision, understand and implement a year-round catechumenate in the parish.
