The rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) in paragraph one of its Introduction says, “The Rite of Christian initiation presented here is designed for adults, who after hearing the mystery of Christ proclaimed, consciously and freely seek the living God and enter the way of faith and conversion as the Holy Spirit opens their hearts. By God’s help they will be strengthened spiritually during their preparation and at the proper time will receive the sacraments fruitfully.” This is the provision the Mother Church has made to help those adults who are not baptized to be baptized and those baptized outside the Catholic Church to be received into full communion with her. Their preparation lasts for months and they are baptized or received at the Easter Vigil. On that very special night they also make their First Holy Communion and are confirmed. Beside these particular groups, RCIA program is very beneficial to those Catholics who need to re-kindle the fire of their Catholicism. We welcome and encourage those who have grown weak in their faith or have doubts about any aspect of the Catholic teaching to participate in this program. We need to keep nurturing our faith and purifying our knowledge.
