October 19 is going to be a great day. That is the day Nick Wagner and Diana Macalintal, who are Team RCIA, will be here to run a workshop day. We have been in communication with Nick and Diana and they are very excited about spending the day with us. They have developed a program for a full and engaging day that will ground us in the Rite itself: the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
