Lectionary Readings for the RCIA

Living the Eucharist provides supplemental materials for parishes that use the Year A readings (even in Years B and C) on the third, fourth, and fifth Sundays of Lent to celebrate the scrutinies. These parishes can click here to go to WebDocs 17 to obtain the Year A lectio divina selections for the Small Group Participant Booklet and the Small Group Participant Booklet for Teens for the third, fourth, and fifth Sundays in Years B and C. The small group coordinator can download these selections and give them to the small group leaders for adults and teens during the training session prior to Lent. Or, the small group coordinator may choose another method of distribution. During the other weeks of Years B and C (the first, second, and sixth week), the small groups use the lectio divina selections for Years B and C.

More information about Living the Eucharist and the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is found on pages 67 and 69 of the Parish Leadership Team Manual.
