The R.C.I.A. is primarily a journey of faith:

  • From the awareness of stirring of faith and curiosity within one's heart,
  • Through all those stages of asking and seeking,
  • Through beginning involvement with Catholic people,
  • Through hearing the Gospel proclaimed and by faithful reflection and prayer on this Word of God,
  • Through study and discussion about the Catholic experience,
  • Through doubts and hesitations,
  • Through involvement in the works of charity and justice with those already committed to the Catholic way of life,
  • Through discernment of God's call for them as individuals,
  • Through the steps of commitment,
  • Through the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist) to a life of faith, love, and justice in communion with Catholics throughout the world.
