(Post-baptismal Catechesis)

These sessions provide opportunities to lead the neophyte into a deeper embrace of the faith and communal life of the Catholic Church. There are two options for this period: the Liturgical Sessions and the Monthly Gatherings. The Liturgical Sessions follow the Sunday Readings from Easter Sunday through Pentecost Sunday.

The Monthly Gatherings flow from the community's experience of the Easter Vigil. Each monthly session focuses on one aspect, symbol, or action of the Easter Vigil to help unpack the hidden mysteries with the neophytes. Participants are encouraged to reflect on each aspect in order to probe the mystery of the faith, savor the sweetness of Salvation from Christ, and then inspire others to spread the Gospel.

Young Apprentices users are provided with Easter Season sessions to help the RCIA team members, young neophytes, their godparents and sponsors, parents and families "unpack the mysteries" of the celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation.
