KOTA KINABALU – Over 80 coordinators and facilitators of the BM Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) programme in the Kota Kinabalu Archdiocese added their insights in the revised syllabus in a workshop organised by the Archdiocesan Catechetical Commission (ADCC) at the Sacred Heart Parish Centre here on 28 Oct 2017.
The commission has been tasked by the Malaysian Catechetical Commission (MCC) under Bishop Cornelius Piong in 2015 to come out with a revised syllabus in the Malaysian context with a grace period of three years. The pilot project has been used by Sacred Heart Cathedral Parish in the past year.
Previously the syllabus was based on the one prepared by Lumko Institute South Africa.
The new syllabus – with enriched footnotes, relevant and useful appendices – is due to be published by year-end and scheduled for use next year.
