Baptism, the Eucharist, and the sacrament of Confirmation together constitute the "sacraments of Christian initiation," whose unity must be safeguarded. It must be explained to the faithful that the reception of the sacrament of Confirmation is necessary for the completion of baptismal grace.89 For "by the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptized] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed."

An Outline of the Stages of the Rite of Christian Initiation

STAGE I - Precatechumenate

The first stage begins sometime after Pentecost, usually in the late spring or early fall. Also referred to as the Period of Inquiry or Period of Evangelization, this is a time for exploring the fundamentals of scripture and tradition. Participants are assisted in formulating a decision whether or not to continue the journey of faith in a special union with the Church community. For those who decide to continue, a rite either accepting them into the Order of Catechumens or welcoming them into the Church is celebrated, usually at the beginning of Advent. Otherwise, interested individuals can continue the precatechumenate, with a view toward Advent of the following year. Either before or toward the end of the Precatechumenate (depending on local practice), each candidate chooses a sponsor from among those members of the parish who have made themselves available and have been prepared for that role.

Step 1 - Rite of Acceptance into the Order of Catechumens This step concludes the Precatechumenate and inaugurates the Period of the Catechumenate. It is a liturgical rite celebrated with the assembly, usually on the First Sunday of Advent (or on no more than three other fixed dates before or during Advent), during which the candidates express their desire to begin or continue their faith journey united with the Church community. The candidates are presented with a book of the gospels as a symbol of their commitment to integrate gospel values into their lives.15 Those who are already baptized, either adults or children, although they do not enter the Order of Catechumens by this step, participate in one of the adaptations of this rite as the first formal step in the process of completing their sacramental initiation.
STAGE II - Catechumenate

The second stage normally starts at the beginning of Advent and should conclude on the First Sunday of Lent. This is a time for the candidates to grow in their understanding and experience of faith and to strengthen their commitment to a lifetime of faith. Individuals who are not ready to move forward to sacramental initiation at the end of this period, can continue as candidates with a view toward Lent of the following year. Throughout this period, the candidates partake in a gradual understanding, acceptance and integration of the truths of faith contained in both scripture and tradition. They can be provided with and guided through either a text or a series of texts, as well as other study sources, to aid them in the intellectual dimensions of this process. Likewise, to enhance the relational dimensions of the process, the candidates should be encouraged and directed to participate in parish-wide activities and events. Moreover, to give a spiritual foundation to this process, the candidates should be instructed in the Mass and should take part regularly in the Sunday assembly. During the Period of the Catechumenate, the practice of dismissing the candidates after the homily at Sunday eucharist can be employed. Whenever this optional practice is used, it is followed immediately by a gathering of the candidates with a catechist to reflect further on the liturgical readings of the day. Whenever candidates are not dismissed, they remain within the liturgical assembly and participate in the rest of the Mass even though, unbaptized or baptized, they refrain from communion until they are confirmed at the Easter Vigil.

Step 2 - Rite of Election

This step concludes the Period of the Catechumenate and inaugurates the Period of Enlightenment. It is a liturgical rite, also referred to as the Enrollment of Names, celebrated with the assembly, usually on the First Sunday of Lent, during which the community accepts the candidates as ready to make their final preparations for sacramental initiation. The candidates sign their names into the Book of the Elect. 

STAGE III - Purification and Enlightenment

The third stage usually begins on the First Sunday of Lent. This stage, regardless of local scheduling, always coincides with the Lenten season and extends to the Easter Vigil. This is a time for the candidates to make their final preparations for sacramental initiation at the Easter Vigil. This is a period of well guided personal reflection and examination, marked by a progressive conversion and immersion into the paschal mystery of death and resurrection. If the practice of dismissing the candidates after the homily at Sunday eucharist was used during the Period of the Catechumenate its continues throughout the Period of Purification and Enlightenment. Three scrutiny rites are to be celebrated during the Period of Enlightenment, one each at one of the weekend Masses on the Third, Fourth and Fifth Sundays of Lent. The Presentations are best included at a Mass either during the weekdays prescribed in the RCIA (the Creed after the First Scrutiny, the Lord’s Prayer after the Third Scrutiny) or, just as appropriately, together on the Second Sunday of Lent. If none of those times are suitable, the Presentations can take place at one of the weekend Masses during the Period of the Catechumenate. 

Step 3 - Celebration of the Sacraments of Initiation

This step concludes the Period of Purification and Enlightenment and begins the Period of Mystagogy. It is a threefold sacramental rite, integrated into the Easter Vigil liturgy, by which the candidates are initiated into the sacramental life of the Church by baptism, confirmation and eucharist.21 Those who are already baptized renew their baptismal commitment and are received into the Church by a profession of faith followed by confirmation and eucharist.

The sponsors present and accompany their candidates throughout the rites of initiation. If someone to be baptized has chosen a godparent(s) in addition to the sponsor, the sponsor presents and accompanies the candidate for baptism, while the godparent(s) acts as a witness for the baptism.

The initiation sacraments should be carried out in a ways that fully express the power and richness of the gestures, words and symbols. Baptism may take place by immersion or with a substantial pouring of water. The chrism, to which a small amount of aromatic oil can be added, should be fragrant and applied for the anointing in a generous manner. The confirmation should take near the place of baptism or in front of the presidential chair. The communion bread should be of substantial form, prepared according to the rubrics, and able to be broken and distributed in sizeable portions without crumbling. The candidates should be the first to approach the altar table for communion. The pastor or parish priest presides at all three sacraments (and the profession of faith) and distributes communion to the candidates. The assembly should be given an opportunity to welcome the newly confirmed members before the preparation of the gifts for the eucharist.

STAGE IV - Mystagogy

The final stage, also referred to as the Postsacramental Catechesis, extends at least throughout the Easter Season to the Feast of Pentecost. This period models for the newly initiated members the lifelong process of faith development. It is during this time that the candidates are guided through the experience of exploring and living out the values and convictions, life-style and actions, that are at the heart of Christian living.

Following the Easter Vigil, the newly initiated members (neophytes) should participate in Sunday eucharist as a group throughout the Easter Season. They should be recognized in a special way on the Feast of Pentecost.

After Pentecost, and until the first anniversary of their initiation, the neophytes should be provided with opportunities to come together as a group for socializing, study and discussion, prayer and reflection. Sponsors should stay in contact with them and remain available to assist them during this first year. Parishioners should welcome and encourage the neophytes as they become established members of the parish family. The neophytes should be invited to support the new group of candidates for initiation and to assist them in appropriate ways during their formation. The parish community should join the neophytes in celebrating the first anniversary of their initiation.
