The Rite of Christian Initiation of AdultsRCIA


Ministers in RCIA prepare adults for resption in the Catholic Church.

What the church teaches about Christian Initiation of Adults: Every year thousands of people are received into the Catholic Church. In years past, inquirers were normally prepared in individual or small-group private sessions by a priest and were received at any time of the year. In 1971, in response to the call of the Second Vatican Council, the Church dramatically revised the process of becoming Catholic. It promulgated what is called the “Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.”

The RCIA, while new in a sense, was not really new. It was an effort to restore the spirit of early Christianity by emphasizing conversation as a participation in the passion, death, and resurrection of Christ, as well as the role of the entire praying, witnessing, and teaching Body of Christ in giving support and shape to that journey.
