As we head back into the school year, there are a couple of things I would make sure I had at the ready. The first is the Catholic Update Guide to Changes in the Mass
. As we head into the fall, parishioners will be hearing more about the changes in the translation of the Roman Missal
. What better way to answer their questions than with a video or series of handouts? I would also make sure to have some pew cards
on hand. These show exactly what the changes in the people’s responses will be.
For your RCIA leaders and participants, I recommend the newly revised Come & See
program. It’s been updated
with new Catholic Updates
to make it easier to coordinate session topics with the Sunday readings. It now offers a proposed format for an RCIA session, an outline for a one-day retreat, a glossary of key terms and tab dividers to help you get and stay organized. We think you’ll find it more user-friendly—as a main or ancillary resource for RCIA. Look for this sixth edition in August
(Leader edition: B61549; Participant edition: B61556).
