RCIA ARCHIVES

What is the RCIA – Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults?

The RCIA is primarily intended for those who are unbaptised and preparing to receive the sacraments of initiation – Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist at the Easter Vigil. It is the inspiration and the structure of how a community ministers to someone who sets out on the path to adult initiation (and children of catechetical age) in the Catholic Church. There are four major periods in the initiation process, separated by various liturgical rituals, which express and celebrate what is occurring at each stage in the process.

The four major periods in the initiation process

  1. Period Of Evangelisation And Pre-Catechumenate - Rite Of Acceptance Into The Order Of Catechumens
  2. Period Of Catechumenate - Rite Of Election
  3. Period Of Purification And Enlightenment - Celebration Of The Sacraments At The Easter Vigil
  4. Period Of Mystagogy - Celebration With The Bishop
