RCIA Sponsors, Hospitality Ministers, and Catechists
RCIA Sponsors walk with candidates and catechumens as they explore the Catholic faith from August through the Easter Vigil. By providing love and support, sponsors are crucial to the success of the RCIA process. Sponsors meet with their catechumens and candidates on a regular basis, including weekly Monday night RCIA sessions. For more information, contact Deacon Dennis Russell at 812-425-1577.
