Thinking of joining the Roman Catholic Church? The Catholic RCIA stages are a good model of basic faith development. This article provides some detailed guidance for that process.

So, you’re developing your faith. Great! Is it a little overwhelming?

  • Where to start?

  • Why so many “stages” of initiation?

  • What should I be doing in each stage?

  • How will I know when I’m ready to move forward?

This article is your best starting point to answer these questions, and more. I’ll provide you with some fundamentals – centered in Christ – for beginning and developing your life of faith in the Roman Catholic Church.

Everything else builds on these fundamentals!

But…

Where do you begin?

For Catechists: This is your page. What would you like to see or know about?

The rest of this page will be used to share your best practices for teaching the RCIA program. If you have anything you would like to share, please contact me at wanda.lighthouseideas.org.

Ideas to build community (Even during a pandemic.)

  • Begin an Ananias ministry in your parish.

  • Create a private Facebook page, website link or other for the parish community to post prayers, thoughts and support              as the candidates.

  • Ask community to send cards and/or prayers to the candidates. (Similar to palancas forCursillo)

  •  Suggest members of community send in printed photos of themselves, their families to tape on pews to show their support and thought
