RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS

ST. JOSEPH’S CATHOLIC CHURCH

 

The rite of initiation is suited to a spiritual journey of adults that varies according to the promptings of God’s grace, the free cooperation of the individuals, and the action of the Church.  It is a gradual process that takes place within the community of the church by reflecting on the value of the Easter mysteries.  During regular gatherings/meetings throughout the year, and the celebration of the Rites, they grow in a relationship with Christ and learn more about the Catholic Church and its teachings.  The people of God, as represented by the local Church, should understand and show by their concern that the initiation of adults is the responsibility of all the baptized.
