Free RCIA Notes and Outlines

When I was an RCIA director, I used to get solicited all the time by companies selling expensive RCIA curricula, sometimes in the hundreds of dollars. These curricula were usually useless, full of wimpy theology and dissenting on moral issues. I therefore took it upon myself to create a brand new RCIA curriculum from scratch, free of all that progressive garbage and rooted in the teaching of the Catechism, the Scriptures and the Saints and Fathers. This curriculum took me two years to put together and countless hours of labor. I offer them to you free of charge for the benefit of your parish and for the sake of those who come to you seeking the word of truth.

That being said, please consider consider making a donation for the use of these files. You are welcome to them for free, but also remember my labors and perhaps consider sending a little something my way for the trouble. $3.00 per course is recommended, but anything received is counted as pure grace. May God richly bless you.
