RCIA

 

"RCIA" stands for the "The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults." This is the process undergone by people seeking initiation into the Catholic Church who have not yet been baptized, who have not had sufficient instruction and their First Eucharist, or practicing Christians from other denominations who have been baptized and now wish to become Catholic Christians.

 

Through a process involving several stages, these people prepare for the reception of these sacraments at the Easter Vigil. These stages include the pre-catechumenate, when a person discerns weather he wishes to become a Catholic, the catechumenate, when a person learns about Catholic Christianity and how Catholics are called to live, the purification and enlightenment, when prayers are offered for those preparing for the sacraments, and a period of continual growth in the Catholic faith.
