RCIA Intentional Sponsors (RIS) is a Facebook group [but, during Lent, my facebook time is very limited] to support the training of RCIA (the Catholic “Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults”) sponsors. We also aim to be, perhaps, of some use to other ecclesial groups. We are developing a 14 month program with three areas of emphasis:
1) Liturgy – The Liturgy of the Hours is our basic text.
2) Doctrine – The Bible (RSV) and The Compendium of the Catholic Catechism are our basic texts.
3) Ecumenism – Marks of the Body of Christ; edited by Braaten & Jenson and The Story of Christianity edited by David Bentley Hart are our basic texts.
