The Order of Christian Initiation of Adults. This is the title of the process designed
to prepare adults for entrance into the Catholic Church by the reception of the
Sacraments of Initiation.
For Adults today, the Church, after the Second Vatican Council, has restored the order
of the Catechumenate in the Order of Christian Initiation of Adults/OCIA.
It outlines the steps for the formation of catechumens, bringing their conversion to the faith to a greater maturity.
It helps them respond more deeply to God's gracious initiative in their lives and prepares them for union
with the church community. This process is meant to form them into the fullness of the Christian life and to
become disciples of Jesus, their teacher. USCCB
This includes an invitation into the mystery of salvation, the practice of faith, hope, and love, and other virtues in
a succession of liturgical rites.
