Turning Hearts toward God:
The Lenten Practice of Baptismal Preparation

June 27-29, 2017
Mercy Center, Burlingame, California
In the San Francisco Bay Area

We are fortunate to have presenters from the Roman Catholic, Reformed and Episcopal traditions to stimulate our reflection on the signs of lives being formed in Christ.

Team RCIA’s Nick Wagner and Diana Macalintal, will mine the riches of the rites and mystagogical approaches of The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
Presbyterian, Paul Galbreath, will explore how a broad appropriation of the sequences of the catechumenate engage hearts in turning toward God in action and behavior. Episcopal priest, Donald Schell, co-founder of St. Gregory of Nyssa in San Francisco will explore the power of ritual in forming community.

As a community of worship, study and prayer we will turn our minds and hearts to appreciate the deep structures of the Lenten journey for our own ministries of baptismal formation.

Registration is now open.  Click here for information on a concurrent training event for parish teams.
