Adult Faith Formation at Risen Savior is looking for people who feel nudged to share their gifts through the following ministries:
- Hospitality at baptisms: this would involve setting up for infant baptisms before Mass, greeting families and their guests, & putting items away afterwards. Training and mentoring provided! Commitment is 3-4 times/year on Sundays when we have baptisms; typically during 9 or 11am masses. People who are gifted at making people feel welcomed and comfortable would be great fits for this role!
- RCIA Sponsors: RCIA is the process through which adults receive sacraments of initiation into the Catholic church. Sponsors journey with their candidate through the process by attending RCIA sessions at least once/month and checking in with their candidate via phone, text, email, or in person as works for their relationship. They also attend the RCIA Rites throughout the year. We never know who will present themselves to be an RCIA candidate each year, so right now we are compiling a list of interested potential sponsors! The RCIA process typically runs Sept-Pentecost the following year. Sponsors must be fully initiated Catholics. People who enjoy forming meaningful relationships, sharing their faith, and mentoring others would be great fits here!
- Baptism Catechists: this role would lead the baptism preparation class for parents and godparents. Training and mentorship provided. Commitment is 4-6 times/year on the first Monday/monthly from 7-8:30pm. Currently the class is on Zoom. People with gifts for teaching and facilitating small groups would be great fits!
- RCIA Team: RCIA is the process through which adults receive sacraments of initiation into the Catholic church. They say it takes a village to raise a child. Well, it takes a village of disciples to mentor a person into the faith! Team members assist in facilitating the RCIA sessions; curriculum and lesson plans with training and mentorship provided. Team members should be fully initiated Catholics. Commitment will vary based on the response. Most likely will involve 1 Sunday/month September through Pentecost from 10-11:30am and 1x/month team meeting. People with gifts for teaching, facilitating, and who have a mature faith would be great fits!
