RCIA Lenten Retreat Days

Winter 2022

Dear Pastor and Parish Coordinator of the Catechumenate (RCIA),

As you know,

RCIA # 139 states that, ”The Period of Purification and Enlightenment is a period of more intense spiritual preparation, consisting more in interior reflection than in catechetical instruction, and is intended to purify the minds and hearts of the elect as they search their own consciences and do penance.”
 
RCIA # 138 states that, “For both the elect and the local community, the Lenten season is a time for spiritual recollection in preparation for the celebration of the paschal mystery.”
 
And so in order to assist parishes with this special time of the Catechumenate process, your local Archdiocesan RCIA Network has organized a special RCIA Lenten Retreat Day for your parish Elect, RCIA Candidates, Godparents, Sponsors, and members of your RCIA team.  This will be a day of prayer and reflection, with an opportunity for those who are already baptized to celebrate the sacrament of Reconciliation.
