The RCIA Leaders Network
We envision an Archdiocese in which RCIA Leaders – both newly appointed and seasoned – are encouraged, equipped and formed to lead vibrant disciple-making RCIA ministries in their parishes.
There is a desire to share what works, get help and stay in touch with other RCIA Coordinators, which is why we want to invite you to join the RCIA Leaders Network! Through this network you can share ideas and build relationships among those leading the RCIA process in parishes. The Network will be built over time and we’d like you to be a part of that process.
If you are interested in joining the RCIA Leaders Network or if you are looking for more information about the Network, please contact Jane Waldock, RCIA Leaders Network Steering Committee Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Ministries and Outreach Office provides support and training to parish RCIA leaders in a variety of ways:
- Team & catechist formation workshops at our seasonal Institutes
- RCIA certificate program
- Guidance & information on the various major & minor Rites
- Deanery or parish-based workshops on a variety of topics
- Recommended resources
- Archbishop Miller’s homily from May 23, 2010 Pentecost Sunday, Cathedral Mass
