Experience the Process to Learn the Process
The Adult Catechumenate is transforming lives and congregations in the 21st century. Not another program, but a process responsive to people who seek to learn more about the way of Christ or deepen their faith and spirituality within a community of worship, prayer, study and outreach.
Our current training approach is through a series of online workshops in which participants will learn the foundational material, nuts-and-bolts of developing a Catechumenate ministry, and experiencing catechesis and ritual practices. Training is geared for congregational teams (Clergy and several lay congregational members) new to the Adult Catechumenate or for new team members.
Training Events are led by teams of practitioners from Journey to Baptismal Living:NAAC.
Previous in-person catechumenate training experiences
“The small groups were excellent ‘hands-on’ experience and good for community building.” – Ashville 2017 Training Participant
Catechumenate training partners with local church staff and volunteers to host an immersion experience of the catechumenate. The events often include small groups, worship with the catechumenal rites, presentations, workshops, services, and receptions.
