Walking the Rite Way 2019

sharing thoughts, ideas and resources for the journey

As part of the rebuilding of the site the blog posts are being reposted. Because of a change in the format the original author is given at the end of the post as well as the original post date. The author is also included in the Tags. Some elements, such as images, have been lost and other, such as links, may not all work  bear with us as we rebuild.


Welcome to Walking the Rite Way, the blog for the RCIA Network. You will find here over the coming weeks: practical ideas and resources, reflections of scripture, the lectionary and the liturgical seasons, comment pieces on how we do the rite. As RCIA touches on so many aspects of the Church’s life the writers also have a broad remit.

We aim to have new piece posted on Monday every week. There is already a team of writers with their fingers poised over the keyboard ready to write but if you are a member of the Network and would like to contribute please contact Martin Foster.

One of the good things about a blog is that it allows you an opportunity to comment on what you have read, to join in the conversation – please do so. The writers are not a group of experts but people who are exploring the ‘Rite way’ and sharing what they find.

A few gentle guidelines for participating:

  • Think of your contribution as one you might make in your RCIA group.
  • Listen to what other people are saying.
  • If you disagree do so with courtesy.
  • Try to be brief and to the point.

The blog is setup so that the first comment you make is moderated — this is a way of avoiding spam.

Welcome to the journey.
