About us

Accompanying seekers through the RCIA process is a big responsibility.

No one likes to feel unsure and isolated. In 2007 we saw how business leaders were using the Internet to share and connect, not just with their customers but also with each other. We thought parish ministers and volunteers could certainly do the same. That’s why we started TeamRCIA...to help you stay connected with a community of fellow ministers.

Because once we’re connected with each other, we can do amazing things:

  • Convert hearts to Jesus Christ
  • Build thriving parishes
  • Break free of “the way we’ve always done it”
  • Go way beyond our own limits
  • Be inspired and inspiring
