RICA JORNADA DE FE

Jornada de Fe The ever-popular and long-running RICA program with imprimatur, Jornada de Fe, has a fresh, new look with expanded leader materials. Written in the engaging, pastoral style of the Redemptorists, Jornada de Fe speaks clearly to audiences in their voice—adults, teens, children, and Latinos. Because the lessons cover the same subject matter across all age groups and languages, families who are in RICA together learn the same material at the same time.

Preguntas (Inquiry)

The flexible style of the nested lessons enables you to teach the lessons in the order you want. The comprehensive Leader Guide gives you everything you need to walk into your RICA class and start leading, whether you’re a veteran instructor or a first-time volunteer.

The lessons in Jornada de Fe, Preguntas begin with the concept of faith in the Catholic Church and continue the exploration into many topics that will be discussed further throughout the program. Some of the concepts include the Trinity, Jesus as fully human and fully divine, an introduction to the Bible, prayer life, the Mass, Church leadership, Mary, and the saints.

Covering each of the periods of Christian initiation, Jornada de Fe begins with the concept of faith in the Catholic Church and explores many topics in its 48 lessons.

Discernimiento (Enlightenment)

Jornada de Fe, Discernimiento takes candidates through a period of self-reflection and preparation for the sacraments. They learn about God’s mercy and forgiveness through an introduction to the scrutinies and are encouraged to participate in the Lenten practices of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. They also participate in a group Lenten retreat, an opportunity for them to spend some quiet time with themselves and God before becoming fully initiated into the Church.

En breve:

Catecumenado (Catechumenate)

Jornada de Fe, Mistagogia leads the new members of the Church, into full participation with their Church and parish communities. At confirmation, they are given the gift of the Holy Spirit and the mission to evangelize. These Mistagogia lessons focus on how to become witnesses for Christ, how to continue their faith formation now that they are fully initiated into the Church, and how to share the joy and enthusiasm they have for the faith with others.

Saying “Yes” to Jesus “Today is the beginning of a very important part of your faith journey,” Mrs. Evans told the class. “You’ve been learning about God, the Church, the sacraments, and how to live like Jesus.

Jesús y las mujeres

Más allá de las palabras

Lecciones femeninas de fe, esperanza y caridad

SALLIE LATKOVICH, CSJ

SERGIO STEVAN

Perfect for preteen ages through confirmation classes, this inspiring book uses graphical representations including: maps of the time period, tables that list books of the Bible, and symbolism of numbers and places found throughout the Bible with their meaning; timelines of events discussed; and Catechism references, all in ways that appeal to the young.

Learn about the faith of Mary Magdalene, the hope of the penitent woman forgiven by Jesus, and the love of Mary for Bethany (sister of Martha and Lazarus). These examples of female discipleship teach us that the essential experiences of the Christian life are simply to be loved by God and to respond to God in that same love.

ADVENT UN NUEVO COMIENZO Un Nuevo Comienzo

Un Nuevo Comienzo

P. DANIEL P. HORAN, OFM

P. RON ROLHEISER, OMI

Author Daniel P. Horan, OFM, uses the theme of “Already, Not Yet” to show you that God in Christ Jesus is always with you. For each day through the Octave of Christmas, Father Dan selects a short Scripture passage, and uses it as a starting point for reflecting on how our faith is already handed on to us, but not yet perfectly lived.

Advent is a time to get in touch with our longings and deepest desires. It is a time to give new birth to the soul as we prepare to celebrate the reality of Christ’s presence among us. Popular spiritual writer Fr. Ron Rolheiser leads us through Advent and Christmas with provocative insights and daily reflections on the Incarnation.
