Typical tasks and responsibilities: Listening and preparing adults in a process to be received into the Catholic faith and parish community.
Required training or skills: 1.5 hr. training session, weekly.
Approximate time commitment: dependent on those who are seeking initiation or welcome into the Catholic community.
