Encourage your assembly to fulfill their baptismal mission of helping to form new Christians with Disciples Making Disciples: Print and Digital Resources for Forming the Assembly. To help bring people to faith and welcome them into the Catholic Christian community parishes need an engaged assembly. They need disciples ready to welcome and support the newcomers in their journey, to share their faith, and to fully, consciously, actively participate in the initiation rites.

Inside this booklet, parishes will find many communication channels to disseminate information to the assembly with Disciples Making Disciples: Print and Digital Resources for Forming the Assembly CD-ROM, such as:

  • Parish bulletins
  • Parish website
  • Social media
  • E-mail attachments
  • Handouts or additions for meetings or training sessions

When you purchase this resource, the CD-ROM includes:

  • Strategies for forming the assembly
  • 78 short Q&As (between 75 and 200 words in length) on Baptism, overview of the Christian initiation process, and the periods and steps of the RCIA
  • 12 short videos
  • A sample plan for using the resources throughout the liturgical year
  • 12 full-page Q&As

Gael Gensler, osf, Timothy A. Johnston, Corinna Laughlin, and Kyle Lechtenberg contributed to this resource.

This is a solid, comprehensive resource that explains Christian initiation to the assembly and invites its participation. With skillfully crafted content designed for a variety of media, parish and RCIA leaders can generate parish enthusiasm for the initiation process. More assemblies are sure to invigorate their own faith and others’ with the help of this resource.

Teresa Marshall-Patterson, director, RCIA & Liturgical Ministries, St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church, Andover, Kansas

Every parish staff should have a copy of Disciples Making Disciples as they begin their RCIA planning. Including Q&As for bulletins and social media, short videos, and suggestions on planning through the liturgical year, this is a user-friendly, comprehensive resource. With it, RCIA coordinators and parish staff can easily prepare their assemblies to fully participate in the initiation process and to understand more fully what the Church desires for all the baptized.

Tish Thornton, director, Office of Worship, Roman Catholic Diocese of Boise

This is good theology written by competent authors and accessible to a wide audience. It is presented in an attractive format that will be useful in a variety of circumstances.  I am truly grateful that the material is also available in Spanish.

Rosanne Belpedio, csj, Office for Worship, Archdiocese of Los Angeles

Disciples Making Disciples is a flexible and useful tool for those coordinating RCIA, and it also provides simple and accessible content to support the discipleship journey of all in the parish community. The remark (in the booklet’s “Strategies” article) that "you can feel the difference when an assembly is engaged" really resonates. These resources can help the already initiated better understand their own Baptism and thus be better equipped to engage in the rites of initiation and to joyfully invite and support seekers and new disciples.
