Representatives came from Cairns, Townsville, Rockhampton, Toowoomba, Brisbane, and also visitors from Darwin and Papua New Guinea.
Brisbane Archbishop Mark Coleridge and Australia’s apostolic nuncio Archbishop Adolfo Tito Yllana gave addresses during the conference.
New RCIA companion Megan Sneddon said the conference was an insightful look at how the church could welcome its new faithful.
“Being on RCIA is an awesome chance not only to learn more about your faith but help and support someone else as an adult,” Ms Sneddon said. “I think it will be inspiring to pray for them.”
Although RCIA programs across Queensland begin this month, with ready and willing inquirers entering the Church at Easter, the Archdiocesan Catechumenate Committee encouraged supporters to be open to journeying year-round.
“We should be open to inquires at any time, welcoming everyone and act on their desire to seek more about the Church at any time of the year,” Ms Sneddon said.
