    Well, you just begin from where you are now! Many adults entering the Catholic Church, or those just thinking about it, follow a process known as the RCIA – the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults. The RCIA process has several distinct stages. These Catholic RCIA stages are a good model of faith development itself, so this article will fit you whether or not you’re actually in the RCIA process. The RCIA, then, is a ritual book of the Catholic Church. It gives the ritual for initiating new Christians with the sacraments of baptism, confirmation, and eucharist. It gives rituals to help the new believers as they grow into followers of Christ and members of the Church.

The RCIA is primarily a journey. It begins with the first stirrings of faith and curiosity. It may culminate in a life of faith, love, service, and continued spiritual growth lived in communion with Catholics throughout the world. The RCIA contains five main stages or phases, during which participants meet weekly.

    RCIA is a process of study, exploration, faith-sharing, and faith formation with specific liturgical rites for seekers and inquirers. Seekers and inquirers are non-baptized adults who desire to be fully initiated into the Roman Catholic Church and/or baptized adult Christians who desire full communion in the Roman Catholic Church.   I was in RCIA last year. They gave us a study book, that we read chapters and prepared for discussion each week. They also gave us a Catholic Bible. Don’t buy too much until you start. Of course the extras are good. Scott Hahn’s books are great as well as Catholicism for dummies is also a great place to start.
