How can you prepare a banquet without the food?
Shopping is a drag. It's hard work to make the list, go to the store, load and unload the groceries and then - and only then - to begin to prepare the meal. For those in RCIA Ministry, the "meal" (as in the Ministry of bringing people to Jesus and the Sacraments) is worth the effort. But, surely, help with the preparation would be welcome!
On this page of the Diocesan Website, RCIA Directors and Team Members will find helpful "ingredients" to make the banquet truly amazing and to lighten the load a bit. Bon Appetit!
Initiation is the work of the Assembly
...but they don't necessarily know that! The Light of Christ that they hold is meant to be shared with others. As part of your outreach and educational efforts for the parish at large, consider using bulletin inserts/announcements each week. As the Rite unfolds, the prayers of the Assembly should surround the catechumens/candidates and the Elect during Lent.
If you're looking for prayers of the faithful (and dismissal prayers) you may want to get Sunday Dismissals for the RCIA by Mary K. Milne.
Speaking of Books
One thing to keep in mind - The only textbooks for RCIA Ministry are the Lectionary and the Rite book. There are also supplementary must-haves: The Diocese of Trenton's "Practical Guide" (which you can obtain through the Diocesan RCIA Ministry Office) and Thomas K. Morris's RCIA: Transforming the Church.
