QCan you lead me to some material I could use to create a retreat for the catechumens? We don’t want to do an overnight. Thanks.
AYour request for RCIA retreats is one I have heard often, and you are correct in saying that there is not much out there. Just for that reason I wrote a book entitled Enter The Rose. It has a number of retreats for all stages of the catechumenate process and includes handouts (on a CD so you can reproduce them) and an audio CD with some ideas, poetry and music. It is published by World Library Publications.
You will find a description and order information by clicking here. Catechumenate teams that have asked questions similar to yours have found this resource very helpful and “user friendly.” I hope you will, too!
If you have any questions about the resource and how to make it work for the situation you describe in your own local setting, please let me know, and I will do what I can to assist you.

Is it possible to buy this book from you? I can only find it online at out-of-print bookstores for outrageous amounts of money. Thank you.
You should be able to order the book directly from World Library Publications, the publisher. If you still have difficulty, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your inquiry!
Just click on the image of the book, and you will wind up in the TeamRCIA bookstore. You can purchase the book there.
All the best.
