Does linking a CICS program repeatedly occupy memory?

I am working on a CICS program which actually works similar to a batch program (i.e., the recs are being processed to the end of the file.) In this program, I am linking to a called program. (Only the load module of the same is present.)

Does linking a program repeatedly occupy memory? Once the called program has been called for the first time and is in the memory, then would the second link load another version in the memory? I am getting RLCP error and the dump is showing the called program's name.
There will only ever be one copy of a program that is XC LINKed to resident within the CIS address space.
