Official definition as per the Vatican:
"As its name implies, this rite is for the full initiation of a person into the church. The previously existing Rite of Baptism, that came into effect in 1614 as a rite of baptism only, was an abbreviated version of the ancient rite for the initiation of adults and had been used for the most part in the modified form suitable for the baptism of infants. The Rite of the Baptism of Infants, introduced in 1969 to answer the need of a rite suited to infants, follows the practice of the previous rite in being for baptism alone, rather than one of full initiation. The limited scope of this Rite brings into prominence, by way of contrast, the comprehensive nature of the RCIA."
RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) was developed after Vatican II (1962-1965) as a revival of the kind of initiation methods that were in use in the early centuries when the Church was extensively persecuted.
If anyone or anyone you know is interested in RCIA for the 2012/13 season please ask them to give the Deacon office a call for more information or e-mail at email@example.com. There is absolutely no pressure to do anything more than "Take a Look".
