Whom are you inviting to become Catholic?
When I was a religious education director, the joy of passing on the faith to adults was like nothing else. It was amazing to watch people choose Catholicism, embrace its truths, and step into the faith. Often the people who came forward were spouses or soon-to-be spouses, close friends with a Catholic who made a suggestion to join me at Mass, or those who were searching on their own and somehow stumbled upon the parish.
Those are great ways to lead people to the Church through relationships. But what about all those people who don’t have a relationship with a Catholic person? How do we reach them and invite them to join us?
We can market RCIA/OCIA to them
Yes, I said the “M” word, and that’s good. Please don’t go. I would not leave you with a thought and go. I have a suggestion for you.
Emily Ricci of Gloriam Marketing is hosting a free, as in no-cost,
“webinar for parishes on how to market RCIA well so we can welcome home some new Catholics this year. This is soul-saving work, and I want every parish possible to learn these strategies so more people come to learn how much Jesus loves them.”
Those are Emily’s words, not mine – soul-saving work. Learn how you can reach the people who are not in the pews.
Who is this webinar for? Emily says this:
If you’re only promoting RCIA in the bulletin; If you’re using the word “RCIA” in your promotion; If you’ve got a crushing-the-head-of-Satan powerful program but no one showing up… You need the tips I’m sharing in this webinar.
