RCIA Resources

Here is a listing of some of the RCIA resources that can be found online:

bullet The Web site of the Archdiocese for the Military Services, USA also offers an excellent RCIA Manual called Crossing the Threshold of Faith. This manual is very well done and is well worth exploring. The introduction to this manual states:

The RCIA Manual offers a systematic presentation of the content of faith as
summarized in the Catechism of the Catholic Church in a sequence of
segments that may be used by pastors and RCIA leaders over the course of
an RCIA program.

The overall goal of these segments is to provide RCIA participants with a
substantial introduction to the tradition of the Church’s teachings and
beliefs. The goal of this Resource is to inspire a “living, conscious and active
faith” in the lives of RCIA participants. Each segment is designed to invite
participants to a personal encounter with Jesus Christ in and through their
study, reflection and discussion of the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Pastors and RCIA leaders are offered a content-based pastoral resource to
assist in their proclamation of the mystery of Christ to inquirers and
catechumens making their RCIA journeys of faith and conversion towards
the sacraments of initiation.
