RCIA Program

The NEW Catholic Answer Bible RCIA Program


 Program Description

The New Catholic Answer Bible RCIA Program is a 26 session curriculum that organizes the discussions of RCIA subject matter around the questions and answers found in The New Catholic Answer Bible. The apologetic nature of presentation complements the inherent inquiry nature of the RCIA process. The session plans, articles and reading guide are designed to be used in any order independent of any other material enhancing flexibility and convenience.


Program Content

The Course Syllabus is a two-page outline of the themes of each session as well as a listing of the insert to read and discuss.

The 26 Session Plans each include: an Opening Prayer; Direction to Review Weekly Readings; Discussion Questions; Direction for Summary of the Session and a Closing Prayer.

The Guide to Liturgical Readings identifies each Liturgical reading of every Sunday between September May of each year giving its location by page number in The New Catholic Answer Bible.

Six one-page articles are included. 1) The Role of the Sponsor in RCIA; 2) Practical Guidelines for Practicing Your Faith; 3) The Sacraments of RCIA: Baptism; Reconciliation; the Eucharist and Confirmation.

The New Catholic Answer Bible RCIA Program is designed to be used only in conjunction with The New Catholic Answer Bible from Fireside Catholic Publishing. The Program is offered for download only FREE of charge to any customer of Fireside Catholic Publishing.
