Our Common Baptism: Rites of Initiation and Catechesis

This seminar explored the ecumenical significance of our rites of initiation into the Christian community, with a special emphasis on the recovery of the formative process of the catechumenate. Learn about current trends and developments in the catechumenate ministry of various Christian denominations. Presenters are active members of the North American Association for the Catechumenate.
