“I am thoroughly impressed with the high quality of the content and the materials. For a number of years I worked with an RCIA team at a large parish in Phoenix, and we spent a good deal of time looking for quality resources and making our own materials. I showed the retired, former pastoral administrator the Way of Christ teacher and student books, and she exclaimed about how beautiful and well conceived the program was! She then said, ‘It makes me want to teach RCIA again!’ I have heard again and again from people in a variety of parishes about the struggles with RCIA. I truly believe if you could make this program known to many parishes in this country, it would be in great demand!” —Mary, RCIA Team Instructor
