RCIA Resources for the
Rites of Initiation

More than just explanation ... inspiration!

Preparing for the Rites of Initation is a very busy season for RCIA Directors. Use our materials and handouts to simplify your work!

Licenses on this page:
Our RCIA resources may be used indefinitely without the need to renew your distribution license, as long as you continue to use them only in RCIA in one parish. (For additional uses in the parish, please order a Whole Parish License when available or additional Small Group Licenses. For example, each grade level in the children's program of your Religious Education Department counts separately and a PPT purchase would require the purchase of additional licenses.)

Easter Vigil Anniversary Cards
Edit and print these cards, then send them to last year's Neophytes and invite them to attend this year's Easter Vigil Mass. It's a great way to once again touch their lives and perhaps even get them involved in next year's program. Prints two cards per page.

What Happens on Holy Saturday?
Brief Instructions for RCIA Elect and Candidates

2- or 3-page hand-out for preparing the Elect, Candidates, and Sponsors/Godparents for the events of Holy Saturday and the Easter Vigil. Page one covers the morning ceremonies of the Presentation Rites (Ephphatha Rite, Rite of Recitation of the Creed, Rite of Choosing a Baptismal Name, and Concluding Rites). Pages 2 and 3 outline the events of the Easter Vigil itself. This Word document is completely editable, so you can adjust it for your local program.
RCIA License $10
The Easter Vigil Explained
3-page commentary and overview of what happens — and why — during the Easter Vigil. It says just enough to add depth of meaning to the experience, since Candidates and Catechumens normally feel overwhelmed and later can't remember every special moment that happened. But it doesn't say everything, in order to heighten the mystery and awe of the actual experience.
RCIA License $12
