The Rite of Christian Initiation is the ordinary way in which adults who have not been
baptized and adults who wish to enter the Church are admitted into the Church.
Christian Initiation is composed of four steps. The first step is a time of inquiry and
exploring the beginnings of faith in a preliminary way. The second step is a time to
explore the teachings of the Catholic faith in a deeper and more systematic way.
The third step offers opportunities to reflect the full meaning of the step they are
about to take. It is also a time of healing so that the good in their lives may be
stregthen. After the third step they are initiated with the Sacrament of Baptisim,
Eucharist and Confirmation. Adults who have been baptized complete their
Initiation by celebrating the Sacraments of Eucharist and Confirmation.
