This resource provides all ministers of initiation--catechists, directors of religious education, sponsors, liturgical ministers--with the tools needed to facilitate a variety of reflection and retreat experiences for RCIA candidates, catechumens, and others. All of the retreat options are rooted in the Gospel and the liturgical life of the church and offer opportunities for incorporating local tradition and current events. From "twilight" retreats lasting for a couple of hours to full weekend retreats, the options for gatherings presented here are truly suited to the spiritual journey of adults. Two CDs to help with the retreats, including downloadable files of retreat handouts (with some art by Jean Morningstar, SNJM), are included.
Topic:  Prayer
"For those parish ministers among us without benefit of a liturgical background, the task of providing for the discernment and spiritual preparation and reflection of those in various stages of the process can be overwhelming. Take time to ponder the beauty of the Rose! You will find this resource invaluable in providing rich experiences of prayer, rooted in the Gospel, and faithful to the rhythm of the Church’s feasts and seasons. Experienced liturgical ministers will enjoy the freedom encouraged to adapt these prayer experiences as needed. Sound interesting? If that were not enough, a CD-ROM with an index of downloadable retreat journals, complete with graphics, and information on appropriate music suggestions is included. An additional audio CD contains a guide for the written materials along with practical notations on liturgical prayer and catechesis, as well as suggestions for lay presiders. The tracks offer reflections on the various stages of the Rite set to the prayerful piano offerings of Jerry Galipeau, with introductions to the retreats, their content, and suggestions for implementation...I greatly appreciate the time-tested prayer experiences contained in this resource. I have used this marvelous work in my own parish community for several years, not only during Lent, but also throughout the entire liturgical year. Having been moved by the response of inquirers, catechumens, candidates, and parishioners alike who have prayed these retreats with me, I am grateful to include it as a favorite in my resource library."
