We are seeking teens & adults to serve as members of the RCIA team.
 Opportunities include: 

Team members: 
The Adult process is looking for people to act as bi-weekly team members for both the catechumens and candidates. A team member helps to provide a welcoming atmosphere and acts as a support for discussion, etc. within the bi-weekly group meeting. 

Sponsors, who walk with an individual preparing to enter the Catholic Church. The sponsor’s role is to get to know the individual, introduce them into the parish community and stand as witness to the individual’s readiness during the Rite of Acceptance. 

A sponsor accompanies any candidate seeking admission as a catechumen. Sponsors are persons who have known and assisted the candidates and stand as witnesses to the candidates’ moral character, faith, and intention. It may happen that it is not the sponsor for the rite of acceptance and the period of the catechumenate but another person who serves as godparent for the periods of purification and enlightenment and of mystagogy.
