National Gathering on Christian Initiation
With great joy and excitement, Liturgy Training Publications announces the first National Gathering on Christian Initiation (NGCI) conference to be held on July 5-6, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. By participating in a variety of interactive sessions, meetings, and prayer opportunities, participants will understand more deeply that the vision of the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the vision of the parish as a community of disciples. Furthermore, we will explore one’s call to discipleship and discuss how the baptismal catechumenate serves as the process for forming disciples in our parish churches. In addition to theoretical and theological topics, the two tracks will separate to discuss the practical skills of their ministry:  what skills are needed in parish ministry? or  how do I best return home after the NGCI and encourage and form initiation ministers in my diocese or region?
