WHAT IS RCIA?
RCIA, known as Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, involves four stages, each marked by a special celebration, the person’s deepening desire to say “YES” to living the Catholic Faith.
A time for searching for God, for meaning in life, or for asking initial questions and seeking answers about the basics of the Catholic Faith.
A time of being formed by the gospel and of learning more in depth about the Catholic tradition.
A time during the Season of Lent involving prayer and deeper reflection as one prepares to receive God’s new life at the Easter celebration.
As a newly initiated Catholic, they continue their formation and education in the Period of the Post Baptismal Catechesis, which is also called Mystagogy. This period continues at least until Pentecost. During the period the newly baptized members reflect on their experiences at the Easter Vigil and continue to learn more about the Scriptures, the Sacraments, and the teachings of the Catholic Church. In addition, they reflect on how they will serve Christ and help in the Church’s mission and outreach activities. — USCCB.org
