RCIA, or Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is an exciting occasion for the new initiate and the Catholic congregation. Creator Mundi has the perfect gifts to mark this event. As we await Christ’s resurrection on Easter Sunday, we also celebrate how the body of Christ has grown. For adults entering the Catholic Church, the Easter season takes on a deeper meaning as they are welcomed into a new faith and a new family.
What is RCIA?
Participating in this ritual is how adults become full members of the Catholic Church. Typically, these are people who come to faith later in life, officially called catechumens. They could also be adult believers, those who previously made a profession of faith in Jesus within another Christian community who wish to convert to the Catholic Faith — officially known as candidates. Though their journeys to faith and the Catholic Church differ, both groups undergo the same initiation process.
The rite takes place on Holy Saturday during the Easter Vigil. During the ceremony, RCIA catechumens and candidates receive the sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation, and Holy Eucharist. After a long period (sometimes years) of prayer, study, and spiritual preparation, the initiate is now recognized as a fully-fledged member of the Catholic Church.
Thoughtful Gifts To Honor RCIA Initiates
Like all rites of passage, RCIA symbolizes transformation, a spiritual one in this case. Gift-giving is a way to celebrate this transformation and the beginning of a new chapter. It’s also a golden opportunity to equip the new initiate for their spiritual journey, perhaps literally in the form of a rosary or in less tangible ways like a message of encouragement.
