• Call the entire parish to be models and examples of living the Christian way of life

• Care for the rites of the catechumenate by working with the parish liturgist and music director; if there is no liturgist or music director, then work closely with presiders and liturgical ministers to be fully prepared for the rites

• Provide pastoral care to catechumens and candidates through not only spiritual guidance but also through genuine attention to their personal needs and calling the entire parish to do the same, especially by selecting good sponsors for each catechumen and candidate

• Assist the catechumens in discerning and choosing good godparents, and approving their choice of godparents for those to be baptized

The ideal candidate is an organizer, coordinator, counselor, supporter, and spiritual guide and involves the community! All other qualities, responsibilities, and characteristics flow from this core ministry. The team leader is to enable the parish community to take the central role in the journey of faith for the catechumens and their families.

This position is well-suited for a candidate comfortable across cultures and able to communicate in English and Spanish for RCIA and RICA as well as across ages for adults, teens and children.

The coordinator will be a practicing, confirmed Catholic living their faith in word and deed.

This position will require about 10-15 hours during the RCIA terms as well as some Sundays and for related events. The position may also require additional ADLA trainings and certifications.
